A thinly sliced ​​chicken with paprika cream: the ideal accompaniment to this pancake. To do this, cut 4 chicken breasts into
strips, sauté in 30 g of butter for 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with paprika, pour 10 cl of liquid cream. Reduce.

To shape these pancakes even better: place a stainless steel circle 6 centimeters in diameter in the pan, fill it with
quinoa, pack well. Bake 2 minutes on each side and finish cooking 5 minutes in an oven at 150 ° C (th.5).
