  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.
