CHICKEN CREPE CASSEROLE





CHICKEN CREPE CASSEROLE
    This is a very tasty casserole – comfort food for sure.  These are good heated up the next day in the microwave oven.  For me two crepes and some sliced tomato was sufficient for my lunch.  I felt satiated by not overly full.  I first got introduced to savory fillings in crepes when I was in my early twenties. 

Two more crepe recipes HERE and HERE.

21/cups cooked, diced chicken (625 mL)
Creamy Sauce:
4 oz cream cheese (125 g)
1/cup whipping cream (125 mL)
2 tbsp water (30 mL)
1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 2 tsp sugar (10 mL) 
  (to balance very savory flavors)
1 tsp onion salt (5 mL)
1 tsp cornstarch, OR arrowroot powder (5 mL)
1/tsp salt (0.5 mL)
1/tsp white pepper (0.5 mL)
3 tbsp mayonnaise (45 mL)
1 tsp lemon juice (10 mL)
1 tsp curry powder (1 mL)
Topping:
3 tbsp heavy cream (45 mL)
11/cups grated Cheddar cheese (300 mL)
