Chanterelle Chicken Crepes

Jump to recipe

Juicy chicken, delicate chanterelles, aromatic herbs and garlic, and a touch of smoked cheese are combined in these Chanterelle Chicken Crepes. It’s delicious – try it!

Another week – another chanterelle recipe. Last for this season. Disclosure: but I am going to post one recipe featured fresh porcini mushrooms, too. If you missed it, please check these recipes: Chanterelle Baked Gnocchi and Chanterelle Seared Scallop Salad.

If the previous recipes were about a more compound flavour and texture profile, this time I opted for a simpler solution. No fancy meats and strong flavours that could conflict with the delicate taste of chanterelles mushrooms. Chicken is an excellent pair to this kind of mushrooms as it has rather a neutral flavour. Garlic, sage, and thyme are to accentuate the elegant flavour. A little bit of cream cheese and cream to make the filling moist, thick, and spreadable. I sprinkled half of the crepes with some smoked mozzarella (Any smoked cheese will do), but this is totally up to you. Some aromatic cheese on top never hurts, though.

I am a huge fan of stuffed crepes, and you can find quite a collection of recipes on this blog including these Butternut Squash Chicken Stuffed Crepes and these BBQ pulled Chicken Crepes. This recipe might sound rather a complicated and time-consuming one. That’s true – it takes some time, mostly because of the crepes. However, you can divide your job between two days making crepes ahead (Just don’t snack on them too much!) Preparing the chicken – chanterelle stuffing takes just about 30 minutes while assembling and baking – another half an hour. Doesn’t sound that bad, after all, right?

So, I hope, you can get your hands on some fresh chanterelles try these Chanterelle Chicken Crepes. If not, please save the recipe for the next season.

Cheers!
