Charlie, with the onion, you can judge it yourself. If you have large onions and they are approximately double small ones (I am supposing here), then you could use five, etc.

What I would probably do is use 1/2 thighs and 1/2 breasts - it will decrease costs and increase flavour!

But this is all just my opinion!

I hate this, I really do. Just think about it 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons. What if I was doing some odd amount of chicken. Which I may still will have to do. Most likely 15 lb, is what I'm going to be making. Gee that is a lot of chicken... Maybe i will do 10.
Anyways so 1/2 cup + 2 TS(=1/8)=1/2+1/8=5/8 of a cup, is it corect?
Did I say I hate this?

Thank you, but I already have meat in the freezer. Besides, my wife, the princess(and I love her no matter what) only eats white meat. Go figure, i do not like white meat, i only like the dark meat. So when i buy a whole chicken it works really well for us.

Charlie, the general rule is about 4 - 6 ounces of meat per person. For a recipe like this, you should be able to get 4 people per pound. Then I usually add one more pound (actually I add 10%) to be safe.

I hope I am not upsetting the apple cart again, but thought that might help.

either it is not there, or I'm looking in the wrong place, but I did not see table spoon conversions.


Also I have another question about this plan. I used to buy gallon size containers of La Choy sweet and sour sauce. But now I can't find anywhere and nobody even has information on the simple fact if company even makes that size. I hate to buy 20 little glass jars, it is such a waist.
