Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat



  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter, plus more butter for the skillet

Orange Butter

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for buttering
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 2 tablespoons Cognac

Savory Crêpe

  • leftover chicken pot pie mixture
  • grated parmesan


For the crêpes:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, milk, salt, and sugar until smooth; the batter will be thick. Whisk in the water, oil, and melted butter.
  2. Heat a 6-inch crêpe pan or nonstick skillet and rub with a little butter.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of the batter and tilt the skillet to distribute the batter evenly, pouring any excess batter back into the bowl.
  4. Cook over moderately high heat until the edges of the crêpe curl up and start to brown, 45 seconds.
  5. Flip the crêpe and cook for 10 seconds longer, until a few brown spots appear on the bottom.
  6. Tap the crêpe out onto a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 12 crêpes, buttering the skillet a few times as necessary.

For the orange butter:

  1. In a mini food processor, blend the 6 tablespoons of butter with 1/4 cup of sugar and the orange zest. With the machine on, gradually add the orange juice until incorporated.
  2. Preheat the broiler.
  3. Butter a large rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with sugar.
  4. Place 2 rounded teaspoons of the orange butter in the center of each crêpe.
  5. Fold the crêpes in half and in half again to form triangles; arrange on the prepared baking sheet, pointing them in the same direction and overlapping slightly.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and broil on the middle shelf of the oven until they begin to caramelize about 2 minutes.
  7. Using a long spatula, transfer the crêpes to a heatproof platter.
  8. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the Grand Marnier and cognac.
  9. Ignite carefully with a long-handled match and pour the flaming mixture over the crêpes.
  10. Tilt the platter and, with a spoon, carefully baste the crêpes until the flames subside. Serve right away.
