Chicken Croquettes


Chicken croquettes are made with chicken and minced onions and parsley, deep fried.


  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs, unseasoned


In a saucepan, melt shortening; blend in flour and salt. Add milk, stirring. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Add chicken, onion and parsley; spread in a greased shallow pan and chill thoroughly. Whisk together eggs and lemon juice. Form chilled chicken mixture into 8 logs; dip each into egg mixture, then coat with crumbs.

Heat deep fat to 365°; fry croquettes for about 5 minutes each, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
