 Ingredients List



3/4 c Chicken; Cooked diced
1/2 c Onion; diced
1 tb Oil
1/2 ts Salt
1 tb Egg Whites*

1 lb Potatoes
1/2 ts Salt
1 ds Pepper
1 Egg White
2 tb Matzo Meal

1. Sauté the diced onion in oil until soft; about 10 minutes. (I sauté my
onions in the microwave. Put in microwave-safe bowl. No oil, margarine, or
liquids. Cover with plastic wrap. Cook on HIGH for 30 seconds.) Transfer to
a chopping bowl (or food processor), add the chicken and chop until fine.
Stir in salt and enough egg white to bind the mixture. Set aside. (*THE
INGREDIENT LIST SHOULD HAVE READ: 1-2 tablespoons egg white.) Peel, boil
and mash the potatoes. Mix in salt, pepper, egg white and matzo meal.
2. Place about 3 T of the potato mixture into the palm of your hand. Make
a depression in the center and fill with about 1 tsp. of filling. Bring the
edges of the potato up and around the filling to completely cover the
filling. Flatten into a patty.
3. Brown the patties on both sides in hot oil. Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot. (I would try baking them, not frying. Spray cookie sheets with
Pam and bake at Makes 9 3" knishes. Serve verenikes as a hot hors d'oeuvre,
a side dish, or a main dish with green vegetable. I got this recipe from
"The Jewish Low Cholesterol Cookbook."
