    1. 1
      In a large bowl combine the chicken, bread crumbs, 2 eggs and onion and mix well; if mixture is too dry to form patties, mix in another lightly beaten egg. Then add parsley, salt and pepper to taste, mix well and form into small patties.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and fry patties in oil until golden brown.

      Nice way to use up leftover chicken. I didn't have an onion on hand, stirred in a bit of dried minced onion, black pepper, a touch of dry mustard and cayenne powder. <br/><br/>These cooked up beautifully, frying them in peanut oil in a cast iron skillet.<br/><br/>I DID adjust the proportions "by ear." The basic recipe here calls for one part bread crumbs to two parts chicken, and that seemed like far too much filler. I chopped the chicken into 1/8 inch dice, added an egg and about half the recommended amount of bread crumbs (using Pepperidge Farm Italian seasoned crumbs). A second egg made things a little too loose, but another tablespoon or two of the crumbs made a nice mixture that felt right when manipulated with the spatula. As I put the croquettes into the hot oil, I sprinkled the tiniest bit of Panko crumbs on each side, to help brown them. They came out crisp on the outside, deliciously golden brown, and well cooked.<br/><br/>Reading other reviews, I think people may not realize that different bread crumbs are going to thicken the batter differently. You really can't follow the recipe exactly; you simply have to make the proportions by feel.<br/><br/>Served it with a spring greens salad, dressed with lemon-tahini dressing and some home-made cranberry sauce.

      Very good basic recipe. I used two eggs, my own home made bread crumbs made from a good crusty french loaf, I did not have parsley on hand so I used the tops of a celery bunch I had which adds extra flavor plus the grassy taste of parsley, I also added two tablespoons mayonnaise. I see many resort to canned "cream" soups, blechhhhh, they are so artificial tasting and bad for you. I also added a 1/4 cup of minced red bell pepper and a 1 tsp of poultry seasoning, seasoning salt instead of table salt and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Was very tasty.

      This turned out to dry and needed more seasons. I had followed the recipe except I added garlic to the onions and cooked and I also added seasoning salt and some garlic powder. I also used the 3 eggs. It needed a sauce or something too. If I try this again I will try adding the cream soup like someone else did.
