Frankly Dang Good Chicken & Apple Crepes

I had an extremely crazy day and came home exhausted.  I was not in the mood for dinner which I know most of us are when we come home from work.  So once again, I told myself I was going to eat out of my freezer.  I had thawed a chicken breast and two pork chops.  I decided to work with the chicken and wanted to make crepes.  I had attempted chicken crepes a couple weeks ago and had so many unsuccessful tries that I did not eat dinner.  I realized it was the pan.  If you are going to make crepes, definitely use a non-stick pan.  These are not my favorite and I did not own one, I do now just for crepes and maybe pancakes.

Well anyway I decided to attempt a second try at making crepes and found a recipe out of Oxygen Collector's Issue Nutrition, Fall 2008.  They were so easy by mixing all ingredients in a blender and then cooking.  Next, I thought what can I do with the chicken and how do I get some fruits and vegetables into the dish.  I decided to fix brown sugar coated chicken and apples.  Which turned out fantastic.  I just started throwing stuff into the pan and here is the result:

1 chicken breast
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp butter
1 green apple or any type
1/4 c chicken stock
3 tsp of brown sugar
salt & pepper to taste

First I put the olive oil and butter in the pan with the chicken.  I then cooked the chicken for about 5 minutes.

Once the chicken had cooked I added the apple slices, you could also chop them.  Slicing cooked them faster.  I also added some chicken stock and the brown sugar, salt and pepper, covered to let cook.

Once everything had cooked for about 5 - 7 minutes, the chicken broth and brown sugar started making a syrup like coating.

Then I cooked my crepes.  They were not the most beautiful but they tasted great.

Then you put the finished product in the crepe, roll it up, and enjoy the heck out of it.  Also, I added a green salad with it to even get in some vegetables.

I have to say that I was impressed with myself because I did not use any recipe on the filling.  It was totally my idea and I came up with a winner.  It had somewhat of a sweet and salty taste, which is always good.
