I am always looking for a chicken croquette recipe.
I love eating them at diners and have made them myself.
Could you share your croquette recipe?
2 cups finely diced cooked chicken or turkey
2 tablespoons grated or very finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk (or non-dairy creamer, if you want it to Kosher)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cups fresh breadcrumbs
Oil for frying
Mix together chicken and onion. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir briskly to make a roux. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until thickened and all lumps are dissolved. Cook for about 3 minutes but do not brown. Add salt and pepper; remove from heat and let cool. Stir in the chicken mixture, lemon juice, and parsley; combine well. Place in refrigerator until chilled.
Heat oil in large fry pan over medium-high heat. Form the chicken mixture into slightly rounded patties. Dip each into the beaten egg and then the breadcrumbs. Fry until browned on both sides.
Let me know if you want the Cicken Pot Pie Recipe! That uses up the carrots from the soup too!
