Creamy Chicken Filled Crepes
Why I Love This Recipe
Before cooking, stand the crepe batter for 30 minutes to allow the starch grains to soften. This will give the cooked crepes a lighter texture.
Light sour cream enriches the chicken mushroom filling without adding as mush fat as regular sour cream. do not boil filling as sour cream may curdle.

3/4 cup plain flour
2 large eggs
