  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped

  • Juice from 1/2 lemon

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, plus more for garnish

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked salt

  • Small pinch of black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons tahini

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish

  • 1/2 tablespoon butter

  • To assemble:

  • Butter, as needed

  • Fuji apple, cut into thin wedges


  1. To make crepes:

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk buckwheat flour, salt and eggs together. Add water little by little as you whisk, until batter reaches a smooth consistency.

  3. In a pan over medium heat, melt butter until brown. Pour butter into batter and continue to whisk until batter becomes smooth. Place batter in the fridge for at least 2 hours to overnight.

  4. To make smoked hummus:

  5. Into a food processor, add all hummus ingredients except olive oil. Blend while slowly pouring in olive oil. Continue to blend until it resembles a thick, smooth paste. Set aside.

  6. For chicken:

  7. Butterfly chicken breast and season with smoked paprika, cayenne, thyme, salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add olive oil and butter. Add seasoned chicken, and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until chicken is fully cooked and golden brown. Remove from skillet, and let chicken rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly on an angle; set aside.

  8. To assemble:

  9. Heat a nonstick skillet or crepe pan over medium-high heat. Coat skillet with a thin layer of butter, and wipe with a paper towel. Pour or scoop about 1/4 to 1/3 cup batter into skillet. Tilt skillet with a circular motion to spread batter evenly. Cook crepe for 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly brown. Fold in half and remove from heat. Repeat with remaining batter.

  10. Spread smoked hummus on each crepe, then sprinkle with a handful of cheddar cheese. Top with blackened chicken and apple slices. Wait until cheese is melted, about 45 seconds to 1 minute. Fold into thirds. Wrap in parchment paper and serve immediately.

- 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.
