These delicious savoury pancakes filled with creamy garlic chicken and mushrooms would make a perfect supper dish on pancake day, or any other day! The filling is easy to make and ideal for using up any leftover roast chicken.
Next Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday, also known as pancake day. So today I am sharing my recipe for a simple, easy to make, and absolutely delicious savoury chicken filling, perfect for pancakes with you. Last year I posted my step by step method How to Make Pancakes so there is no excuse. If you haven't made pancakes before I am sure you soon will.
As I said in my post last year, my favourite pancakes are simple ones served with lemon and sugar and that is what I usually serve on pancake day. However, I am also very partial to a savoury pancake every now and then.
The creamy garlic chicken and mushroom filling in these is a case in point. Ideal for using up chunks of left over roast chicken, and it makes for a fabulous supper dish. I also like to serve pancakes as a starter, in which case I would serve one per guest.
If you fancy trying something different this year, I am pretty sure you are going to like these.
