I want to make chicken empanadas to use up some left over chicken. The recipe I was looking at says to use: "2 eggs, scrambled; set aside 2-3 T for wash." Does this mean the eggs are already cooked, like a stir fry, or should the eggs be added to the chicken mixture raw, to act as a binder? BTW, cook time is 30 minutes @ 350, so the eggs will surely cook through if added raw. I know the egg wash requires raw egg. Thanks for your help.
