Savory Chicken and Caramelized Onion Crepes | Sprinkle and a Dash | Crepes

I love variety for dinner and this did the trick.

Not breakfast, not tortilla, just the perfect change.

Savory Chicken with buttery sweet caramelized onions and melted cheese hugged in a tender crepe.

I used a regular crepe recipe, but added my gluten-free or low-carb diet crepe option at the bottom of the recipe for those that might like that option.  I did make both and my recipe for low- carb tortillas / crepe worked great for my husband while we enjoyed the traditional version.
