Directions

  1. To Make The Croquettes:
  2. Either finely chop the chicken pieces, parsley and onions, or place in a food processor and pulse.
  3. Tear the slice of bread into pieces and place in a bowl.
  4. Pour the milk over the bread, and let sit a minute or two.
  5. Squeeze the bread of excess milk and place the bread in with the chicken mixture.
  6. Add the remaining ingredients except the bread crumbs, and using your hands mix very well. If the mixture is too soft to form into croquettes, refrigerate one hour.
  7. Shape the croquettes into 3 inch discs or tubes, and roll in the bread crumbs.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F. for about 20 to 30 minutes or until they are cooked through and golden brown in color.
  9. To Make The Sauce:.
  10. Place all the sauce ingredients except the olive oil in a food processor.
  11. Pulse a few times until you have a finely chopped mixture.
  12. Do not blend!
  13. Add half the olive oil and pulse.
  14. Check the consistancy of the sauce. It should be thick, but still be loose.
  15. Add the rest of the oil if needed.
  16. Serve the croquettes on individual plates with a spoonful of sauce mixture on top or in a small dish on the side.
