Total Calories: 452


8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 rib celery, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste
Pinch cayenne, or to taste
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups homemade or low-salt canned chicken stock
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup heavy cream
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 1/2 cups 1/2 inch pieces cooked chicken (from about 4 small breast halves)
8 crepes, basic recipe
3 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro


1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat.
2. Add the onion and celery cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.
3. Reduce the heat to medium and add the curry powder and cayenne and cook for about 1 minute.
4. Stir in the flour and cook, whisking constantly, until the flour has lost its raw taste, about 2 minutes.
5. Whisk in the stock and raisins.
6. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, whisking often, until thickened, about 5 minutes.
7. Add the cream, season with salt and pepper, increase the heat to high and boil to thicken for about 3 minutes.
8. Strain about 1 cup of the mixture through a fine sieve to use as the sauce.
9. Combine the remaining cream mixture with the cooked chicken and stir well to blend. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
10. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
11. Lightly butter a medium baking dish. Arrange the crepes flat on a large work surface.
12. Divide the chicken filling evenly among them (about 1/3 cup each), spooningit in the center of each crepe.
13. Roll each crepe into a thick cylinder.
14. Arrange the filled crepes in a single layer in the baking dish. Pour the reserved sauce over the center of the crepes.
15. Bake, uncovered, until the sauce is bubbly and the crepes are lightly browned on the edges, about 20 minutes.
16. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and cilantro and serve.
