Chicken and Mushroom Crepes





Serves 4

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts diced

2 cups sliced button or portobello mushrooms

3 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ cup clarified butter

2 tablespoon chopped tarragon

¼ cup sweet sherry or marsala

1 cup chicken stock

1 cup heavy cream


Method of Prep:


Prepare crepes ahead of time. In a large skillet, sear chicken in clarified butter. Cook chicken halfway, about 2 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. In the same skillet, add mushrooms to clarified butter and cook until brown. Add garlic and flour and stir to form a roux. Deglaze with sherry and cook alcohol off. Add stock and cream. Cook over medium heat until thick. Add chicken back to the pan. Cook chicken until internal temperature of 165 degrees. Finish sauce with tarragon and season to taste. Fill crepes and serve immediately.
