Chicken and Mushroom Crepes

This recipe is a great one to pull out for special occassions!  It makes a really nice dinner, and its delicious.  The original recipe came from a Paula Deen magazine, but I've tweaked it and made some adjustments to suit my family's taste better, and this is the result.  I hope you enjoy it as much as do.
