Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until golden. Add the tomatoes, eggs, and chicken. Saute for two minutes. Add the chicken stock, potato starch, and garlic; cook until desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

Yields 18-22 crepes.
To Prepare Shallot Sauce
Heat the oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until golden brown. Add the chicken stock, salt, and pepper, then raise heat and bring to a boil.
Add the dissolved potato starch. Optional: For a rich color, add dry red wine. Stir until sauce is evenly combined. Lower heat and let simmer for 6-8 minutes until sauce thickens to desired consistency
Regular onions can be substituted for the shallots in this sauce.
