Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2007

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 filled crepe)

Ingredients

  • 1 applewood-smoked bacon slice, diced
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots (about 2)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/4 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 Make-Ahead Crepes

Preparation

Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 1/2 teaspoons drippings in pan; set bacon aside. Add chicken to drippings in pan; sauté 3 minutes or until browned. Add shallots, thyme, and mushrooms; sauté 5 minutes or until tender.

Combine milk and flour, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Gradually stir milk mixture into chicken mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until thick (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in bacon, cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper. Spoon about 1/4 cup chicken mixture in the center of each Make-Ahead Crepe; roll up.
