Tasted good. My family thought it was just okay. I had a difficult time getting the sauce to ever thicken up, trying numerous things. If I make it again, I believe I would put some savory herbs in the crepe batter to make it taste more like 'dinner' and make a thicker sauce using butter and flour, before adding the milk and more seasonings.

Oh My Gosh!!!! I made these and it was awesome, delicious,sensational all rolled into one elegant dinner. The only change that I made was with the sauce I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream. The crepes were simple, easy to make and went extremely well with the chicken. I am having card club tonight and they are going to be served this delicious elegant meal. Thanks KelBel

Thought that this was very tasty. I used already prepared crepes, but followed the recipe as written otherwise. The tarragon is a great flavor in the sauce. I also think that this could be made with several variations. Any leftover meats, mushrooms, etc. Very quick and nice. Thanks KelBel.
