I recently hosted co-workers for a bridal shower lunch for a colleague, and we had a really nice time. Yes, we did have flowers and a tablecloth, but under the tablecloth was our KSU beer pong table. Yep, classy. Hey, it worked GREAT. And let 12 people all sit together and enjoy lunch, and yes, a few raunchy gifts.
My menu included Oriental Crunch Salad, Crepes Divan, and Upside Down Apple Pie. There were no leftovers, and I’ve taken my time posting this recipe, mainly because I don’t really have one. So, here ya go. Takes a little time to make but oh so good. And, I have amazing memories of how this recipe came about. There was a restaurant named The Magic Pan on the Plaza in Kansas City, and once my mom and I ate lunch there, we figured out how to replicate the recipe for these delicious crepes. Great memories!
Bisquick baking mix — Use the recipe for pancakes, but add more milk to make thin batter. Utilizing a small, non-stick skillet, spray with cooking spray and heat to medium-high heat. Test with a few beads of water to make sure it sizzles. (You’ll have to practice a couple times to determine the amount of batter for your pan.) Place batter in middle of pan and roll it around to spread very thin. As it starts to create bubbles, run your flexible pancake turner around the edges to loosen, and flip when ready. Stack on wax paper.
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 tsp lemon juice
Curry powder to taste – start with 1/2 tsp and go from there – this is the key flavor!
Chicken – a rotisserie chicken from your local deli is the easiest, but you can also boil and shred chicken breasts
Broccoli – again, you can use frozen, cooked broccoli spears, but the fresh is so much better.
Grab a plate, and place a crepe on it, adding a nice spoonful of sauce down the middle. Add shredded chicken and broccoli. Roll up and place in greased pan. Add a little more sauce down the middle and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Either bake at 350 until bubbly, or you can refrigerate and either microwave or bake when needed.
