How to make Savoury Crepes with Za'atar Spiced Chicken Recipe

  1. To begin preparing Savoury crepes with za’atar spiced chicken and mustard cream sauce requires preparing crepes, its filling and sauce. Get all the ingredients handy and start with this step-by-step procedure.

Instruction for Crepes
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, sugar, milk, eggs and a pinch of salt. Whisk it all together.

  2. Blend crepe batter in a blender until smooth.

  3. Then strain the crepe mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Pouring the mix into a tall jug makes it easier to portion out the batter when making crepes on a hot pan.

  4. Allow the crepe batter to rest at room temperature for about 15 to 20 minutes. This makes the crepes soft and fluffy.

  5. Heat the crepe pan on a medium flame, butter it evenly and pour about 1/3 rd to half ladle of batter and quickly take the crepe pan give swirls such that the crepe spreads to make thin crepes. Make the film of batter as thin as possible.

  6. Cook it until the bottom becomes golden and flip them carefully to the other side for a few more seconds. These crepes cook real quickly. Transfer the crepes to a plate and continue to make the rest of them similarly from the batter.

Instruction for Chicken
  1. Heat some olive oil in a wok, add the red pepper and tomatoes, sauté for a minute.

  2. Then add the za'atar spice and paprika and chicken, give it a quick mix, add a splash of water and let it cook till chicken is done. Takes 5-6 minutes.

  3. Remove and keep aside. I also added some fresh red bell pepper to the mixture for added texture. Drizzle the lemon juice and add chopped cilantro.

Instruction for Sauce
  1. Heat the butter in a saucepan on medium flame till melted. Add the flour and whisk till smooth.

  2. Add milk and keep whisking vigorously making sure there's no lump, reduce heat to low, add the cream and let it cook for 2-3 mins.

  3. Remove from heat, add the mustard and whisk. Add salt and pepper to taste, stir and adjust taste.

Instruction to Plate the Crepe:
  1. Place a crepe on a plate. Spoon some of the chicken stuffing in the centre and fold it into a triangle. Drizzle some of the cream mustard sauce on top of Savoury crepes with za’atar spiced chicken and serve immediately.

  2. Enjoy!!
