- You never had apple and cheddar cheese combination before? Oh, crepe. All right, let's beginning with making buckwheat crepe batter. So I have one cup of buckwheat flour right here and I'm going to melt some butter to create nice, golden-brown butter for the batter. I'm gonna add a little pinch of salt to the flour and crack two eggs. Whisk them first. And now I'm going to slowly add some water into the batter. So while whisking, let's pour the brown butter. Slowly. We are doing this because there's egg in the batter and we do not want the egg to be, either separate or clumps or anything like that. This is what you're looking for, little thinner than a regular pancake batter. I'm going to set my crepe batter into a refrigerator at least two hours to overnight. All right, let's make smoky, smoked hummus. So you will need chickpeas, drained and rinsed and add it into a food processor. A clove of garlic. Just crush them. Just to make sure they will grind evenly with the chickpea. And some lemon juice. Make sure the seeds not going in. And then season with some salt and pepper. And another smoky flavor is coming from smoked paprika. Some tahini. Close this down. And pulse a little bit. Okay, and then turning on. We are going to slowly add olive oil. Until they're having really nice, smooth texture. So right now it's totally up to you, either make super duper smooth hummus or a little chunky hummus. It's totally up to you, to your taste. I think I'm gonna go... About this much. I have chicken breasts that I butterflied right here and we are going to season them with some salt, be heavy on all the seasoning. Okay and some pepper. And some dried thyme. Cayenne pepper for a little kick. Make sure you season from the high so they will sprinkle evenly onto the chicken. And lastly, some more smoked paprika. And we're gonna do exactly same thing to the other side. All right, my pan is hot enough now, I'm going to add some olive oil. And same amount of butter. Let it melt. Now let's add the chicken. Cook about three to four minutes each side, or until the chicken is fully cooked and nice blackened outside. Don't be scared. Thinking, "Oh, this may be burnt." No, this is what you want, let me tell you. All right, all the components are ready, I'm going to grab my crepe batter. All right, my crepe batter been rested for a while and they're ready to rock and roll. So heat your crepe pan or non-stick wide skillet over medium-low, low heat. While the pan is heating up I'm going to slice up some apple. Just slice them about a quarter-inch thick. What we're gonna do is cover the pan with some butter. And now, there's some crepe batter. Add it while you swirl. You need it to be really, really thin. And just remember, your first crepe will never turn out perfect, okay? We're gonna cook in very low heat. Only the bottom part, we are not gonna flip over, oh my god, thank me later, okay? Now we are going to flip them in half and turn the heat very, very, very low. Spread some hummus. Cheddar cheese. I know, I know, it doesn't sound right, some of the hummus, cheddar cheese, crepe, chicken, and apple? And let the cheese melt a little bit and all the ingredients will heated up together. Now I'm going to fold in either half or the third, however you like. Bring it to, ooh! Parchment paper like this, roll it up. Ta-da! I mean, the flavor I'm putting together here, you will never put it together but trust me, it works amazingly. You've got to try.
