Oven Fried Chicken Croquettes
These chicken croquettes need to chill for at least 2 hours before cooking.

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 1/4 cups fine dry bread crumbs, divided
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a medium saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes without browning. Gradually whisk in milk and broth; cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat; let cool 5 to 10 minutes. In large bowl, combine chicken, 1 cup bread crumbs, parsley, salt and eggs. Mix well. Pour in sauce, blend well. Cover and chill for about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine Parmesan cheese and remaining 1/4 cup bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Shape chicken croquettes mixture into 2 1/2-inch balls, then roll to form oval shapes; makes about 8. Roll shaped croquettes in bread crumb mixture. Arrange in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over chicken croquettes. Bake chicken croquettes 30 minutes until golden brown.

Oven Fried Chicken Croquettes, Member wondergirl1971

This is an excellent recipe for using leftover roast chicken or turkey. I added a clove of minced garlic and some chopped onions to the first step of melting butter. And after the white sauce had thickened I tossed in four slices of American cheese. The croquettes turned out wonderfully, and even my picky 6-year-old gave it two thumbs up. I would definitely make this again. (A tip: Be sure to make enough white sauce; otherwise there's a tendency for the croquettes to be dry.)
