CHICKEN AND MUSHROOM CREPES #lunch #brunch

This Chicken and Mushroom Crepe Recipe is a fabulous dish to serve at a lunch or an extravagant informal breakfast. The best part about it is its vast majority can be made the day ahead, leaving only the bechamel sauce, get together and preparing to the day of your gathering.

This formula is truly "Franglais Cooking, best case scenario. In Brittany, France where crepes start from, you'll discover sweet crepes made with white flour or appetizing crepes, or Galettes as they are called, made with buckwheat flour or "ble noir". Be that as it may, you don't generally discover a "pound up" of flavorful crepes, in a white flour crepe, this way.

When I previously served this dish to my French spouse he resembled "huh?"… however then obviously he ate up each nibble, since let's be honest who can oppose a rich chicken and mushroom crepe slathered in bechamel sauce and bested with percolating gruyere cheddar?!
