  37. I haven’t had chicken crepes in so long…thank you so much for reminding me just how delicious they are! These look absolutely wonderful!

  38. Oh what a creative meal! Love it!

  39. Yum, these crepes look so tasty. I love the idea of a creamy chicken filling. The only way I seem to make crepes is the way I learned from my sister, who lives in Norway: You make the crepes then top with cinnamon sugar and squeeze on some fresh lemon juice. It really is meant to be dessert, but when our kids were little we served it sometimes for dinner, too — kind of like having French toast for dinner :) Anyway, great post. Thanks for the reminder that there are other kinds of crepes besides cinnamon sugar ones.

  69. Juliana, you brought back a very distinct memory for me. There used to be an eatery in Montreal called ‘The Magic Pan’. This was my place to go with my grandmother. She would have nothing else on the menu except for there chicken crepe somewhat similar to yours minus the corn. I personally never made it because it held a special place I didn’t want to diminish. Lot’s of time has past…this may be time to make new memories.

    Thanks for this lovely dish…really appetizing :o).
    Flavourful wishes,
    Claudia
