Chicken Crepe Pockets have been a highlight at our table for years. From holiday parties to potlucks to birthdays, they are often an appetizer that outshines the main entrée. In fact, they often disappear from the spread first because they are simply too cute not to try!

Nowadays we have them on hand in our freezer for those rainy days. They make for the perfect grab and go lunch, snack or quick dinner paired with a salad or soup.

ingredients for the crepe pockets

How to Make Chicken Crepe Pockets

  • Whisk eggs with flour, adding milk as you stir. Continue stirring and add oil slowly.
  • Bring a frying pan or crepe pan to medium-high heat and spray with cooking oil.
  • Lift up the frying pan with one hand and with the other add crepe batter. Flip the crepe to cook other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Cook chicken breast and shred. Add softened cream cheese and green onions.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Note: If you like it spicy, add in a bit of crushed red pepper.
  • Place a spoonful of filling in the center of a crepe.
  • Fold crepe sides together like a purse and tighten up with a green onion like a bow. Place pockets in an oven safe dish or on top of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350°F.

Hot Tip: Only cook the crepes right before you plan to serve them. They are best warm, when the center is hot, bubbly and melty.

Other Savory Fillings for Crepes

There are so many different filling you can make for the crepe pockets. Here are a couple other variations to try:

  • Egg and Cheese Crepes – Make an egg scramble, add some cheese and combine. Add a handful of bacon or ham to the mix and a sprinkling or basil or dill.
  • Salmon Dip Crepes – Using the same combination of cream cheese and green onions, simply substitute chicken for smoked or baked salmon, Serve cold for a fun spin on a traditional lox bagel.
  • Cheesecake Crepes – Add your favorite berries (I like blueberries or raspberries) to cream cheese and sugar. For this sweet spin on the recipe, use a toothpick to secure the crepe pocket versus a green onion.

Serving Chicken Crepe Pockets

Serve Chicken Crepe Pockets with any of your favorite dipping sauces or in a bowl with a ladle or two of chicken broth. We love serving them with sweet and sour sauce. We find that it really elevates the dish.

Storing Chicken Crepe Pockets

Chicken Crepe Pockets are best refrigerated in an airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to a week and can be reheated in the microwave for 45 seconds or eaten cold.

When freezing crepe pockets, you want to place them individually on a flat tray. Once they fully are frozen, you can place them in a freezer-safe bag for more economical storage. Thaw in the fridge for a couple hours or overnight. Reheat and serve immediately.
