Prep 30 m - Cook 15 m - Ready In 45 m
Ingredients
CREPES:


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt


FILLING:


1/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cups diced celery
1 cup diced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup milk
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1/2 cup warm water
3/4 cup sliced black olives
2 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken breast meat
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Directions

1. To Make Crepes: In a medium bowl combine the flour, milk, eggs, oil and salt and beat together for 1 minute, until you have a smooth, thin batter.
2. Heat a lightly greased medium skillet over medium heat, pouring in a thin layer of crepe batter that covers bottom of pan. Brown on one side only, repeating until all of the batter is used. Set crepes aside.
3. To Make Filling: Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and saute celery and onion until just barely tender. Stir in flour, salt and curry, blending well. Dissolve bouillon in water, then pour milk and bouillon mixture into skillet, stirring until well mixed and thickened. Add olives and chicken and mix all together.
4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
5. Spoon some of the filling mixture onto the center of each crepe, leaving enough room to fold edges burrito-style. Fold up crepes and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese.
6. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Note:

I recommend not using bullion cubes, especially if you want to watch salt content. I used the really excellent Minor's Chicken soup base, which comes regular, low sodium, or no sodium. If you cannot find this locally, you can check http://www.soupbase.com/. A great little mom & pop shop very near my home. Lucky me!
