my suggestion would be the following:

remove the chorions however you can (just do it manually).

then, treat the embryos with liberase (Roche) according to their  
instructions.  different tissue types, thicknesses, etc. vary.  i can  
give you advice for dissociating zebrafish, but that may not help  
much.  basically, we add liberase to hanks balanced salt solution  
with calcium and magnesium.  i gently shake them on my vortexer at  
37C for 30min-hour (depends on the age).  at the end, i filter  
through .45uM mesh, and wash out the liberase well.  that should do  
the trick.

let me know if you need any further assistance.
