 Cook manicotti according to package directions; drain. Cool in single layer
 on foil. Preheat oven to 350. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add
 chicken and onions. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and onions are
 tender. Stir in 1 cup mozzarella cheese, egg whites, bread crumbs, parmesan
 cheese, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Fill each cooled pasta tube with
 about 1/4 cup meat filling. Spread thin layer of spaghetti sauce on bottom
 of 13 x 9 pan. Place filled pasta in prepared pan; cover with remaining
 sauce. Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese. Bake, covered, for 45
 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
