Chicken, Ricotta & Asparagus Crepes

 

Making your own crepe batter is a great alternative to dishes which would traditionally use tortillas, such as chicken wraps and burritos.  These crepes are made with wholemeal flour and almond milk which is a healthier substitute.

Ingredients:

Crepes:

  • 100g wholemeal flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 300ml almond milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • pinch salt

Filling:

  • 240g chicken breast, from Athleat high quality meats
  • 100g ricotta cheese
  • 50g grated parmesan cheese
  • 2tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
  • 100g asparagus, trimmed and sliced in half lengthways
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 200g spinach, roughly chopped
  • 100g green beans
  • 100g salad leaves

How to prepare:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 c fan / 200 c electric / gas mark 6
  2. Either bake or griddle the chicken for around 15 mins or until cooked through. Shred the chicken and leave to cool.
  3. Cook your asparagus in the same method as the chicken but for only 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, half lengthways and allow to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, make your crepe batter by beating all the crepe ingredients together in a bowl. Using a small non-stick pan, melt some butter in the pan before pouring a small amount of batter to make your crepes. Make your crepes one by one, you should be able to create 4-6 crepes, depending upon the size of your pan. Transfer your crepes to a plate as you go and allow to cool.
  5. In a large bowl combine the chicken, spinach, ricotta, parmesan, chives, basil, lemon zest & juice, salt & pepper. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling across the middle of each crepe, top with some lengths of asparagus; roll up to enclose the filling. Place the crepes, seam-side down, in a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake until the filling is hot, about 15 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, steam or boil your green beans until tender (around 5 mins) then serve immediately with the hot crepes and salad on the side.

Enjoy.
