This is one of my most favorite ways to use up leftover chicken breast. The egg bake puts new life into dried out breast that usually sits in your fridge since no one wants to eat it. The flavor combo pops and the carmalized onions bring the dish up to a whole new level of flavor. I have also used butternut squash in place of the sweet potato.
