  • 4 Cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 chicken breast
  • 5 crepes
  • spinach leaves; fresh or
  • green beans; slivered
  1. If using homemade chicken broth, clarify (whip in egg white with its broken shell, add it to boiling broth; continue to boil for 10 minutes, then strain through cheesecloth).
  2. Cut cooked crepes (any main course crepe will do) into long thin strips. This is a good way to use mis-shapen crepes.
  3. Cut uncooked breast of chicken into match-stick strips and cook for 2 or 3 minutes in the simmering broth.
  4. Then add crepes and finally the raw spinach or slivered green beans.
  5. Cook 1 minute more. Check for seasoning and serve.
