This is a a dish dinner that comes together easily and is a tasty Spring time twist on traditional crepes. The recipe comes together easily as a make ahead meal to bring along while on a camping adventure… or prepare this while camping using your toaster oven or convection oven in your RV.
If you are limited to stovetop or grill cooking, warm the cooked chicken and sauce mixture in a pan over medium/ low heat and serve with a crepe on the side or roll the filling in the crepe and serve enchilada style.
1 pkg pre-made crepes typically in the produce aisle (or you can make you own)
16 oz precooked sliced chicken fresh or frozen, cut in 1″ strips
8 spears, fresh asparagus
20 – 24 oz alfredo sauce premade jar, (or homemade white sauce)
1/3 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 cup grated parmesan
pinch cayenne pepper
- Apply a light coat of baking spray to the inside of a medium casserole dish.
