Re­move from heat and trans­fer onion mix­ture to bowl. Stir through re­main­ing in­gre­di­ents. Sea­son with salt and pep­per. Set aside to cool.

Li­ly­dale are free range chick­ens that are pro­duced as a high qual­ity, great tast­ing prod­uct. The chick­ens are raised and tended to by farm­ers who en­sure they are fed a nu­tri­tious diet and take pride in the wel­fare of the chick­ens.
