Yesterday around 3:30 pm I was inspired to make dinner from scratch, and happened to look up on top of my fridge and notice my poor lonely crepe maker just itching to be used again.
So I scoured the web for a recipe for a low-fat crepe and a chicken filling – all made with ingredients I had on hand. I used a couple of different recipes and even used my own creativity and it actually turned out kinda tasty so I thought I’d share the recipe.
You can use crepes or tortillas, my recipe is for home-made low-fat crepes.
If you are brave and have time and want to make the crepes yourself, I have a crepe maker that I bought on Amazon.com that makes it SO EASY. Otherwise I think you can buy them or just use tortillas…obviously that will change the Weight Watchers points info I provided.
Makes 12 small crepes (about taco shell sized)
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2% milk
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
Mix the ingredients together well. Spoon onto pan or crepe maker and spread thin. Brown lightly on each side. Set aside.
Chicken & corn filling:
I had a little bit left over from this recipe that didn’t fit in the crepes…so I put it in a bowl and will eat it on a tortilla for lunch!
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Place all the ingredients into a pan and heat and stir until all ingredients are hot and mixed well.
Put it all together:
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350.
Spoon filling into crepes, and place in a 9×13 glass baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
Cook for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Total WW points per crepe: 4 pts (if you use skim milk, light sour creme and light cheddar cheese, you can probably reduce that by 1).
Overall we all liked it. Even my husband went back for seconds. It could maybe have used a little bit more of a “kick” to the flavor of the filling, but it is something we will definitely try again. Maybe next time we will use less chicken and add refried beans to it!
(note, I used the WW online tools recipe builder to calculate WW pts.)
