Ingredients

    Chicken Breast, no skin, 6 ounces
    Onions, raw, 1/2 cup, finely chopped

  • I tried this recipe last night, with major changes to it, and my husband loved it, still needs major tweeking for us. Dry eggs are an egg substitute. They are a powdered binding agent that replaces eggs. Lactose, gluten, milk etc free. Like "Egg Beaters" except only used in baked food preparation - 1/8/09
