Chicken and Vegetables Stuffed Coffee Pancakes with Sauce
Comments: Coffee pancakes can be prepared one day ahead of time and kept covered, refrigerated, or even one week ahead of time and kept frozen, well-wrapped.
Sauce and filling can be prepared the night before serving, or early in the morning before lunch.
If desired, reserving sauce separately, stuff pancakes approximately 1 hour before serving. Thirty [30] minutes before serving, heat and then pour hot sauce all over stuffed pancakes, into an oven-safe dish; reheat into a preheated 350F [180C] oven until bubbling before serving.
Well-wrap each remaining stuffed pancake into waxed paper before wrapping pancakes together into al foil; freeze.
