This was such an easy meal - I used up some chicken from the previous night's roast. The only alterations I made were to add some finely chopped carrots as I was worried that the kids wouldn't like the mushroom soup. Anyway, the whole family loved this meal which is testament enough and making it ahead is such a great idea! I will definitely make this again!
Sorry Rita, wish I could give this more stars. This dish really wasn't to my liking as much as I had hoped. DH liked the chicken and onion mix but didn't care for the crepes. I had to agree. The crepes were very bland and mushy and too flour tasting. I always try to give a recipe two tries. Next time I think I will make my crepes (recipe not posted yet) and add cilantro to the batter before making the crepe (My recipe for crepes is a little different). We didn't serve cilantro or yogurt with the meal so maybe that could be some of the problem. However, I liked the flavor of the curry and turmeric, and the color of the food was bright yellow (I took a picture and will post shortly). Next time I think would like to add fresh chopped mushrooms to help break up the onions and chicken a bit. There just wasn't enough mushrooms from the soup.
FYI turmeric does stain!
