These croquettes are so tasty and since they used canned chicken, are a snap to prepare. And the kids love them. This is a "base" recipe...you can add your own spices and seasonings as desired.
- 3 (10 ounce) cans chicken
- 1 medium onion, shredded
- 1 1⁄2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- vegetable oil or canola oil
- Heat oil in skillet over medium heat.
- Mix together all ingredients.
- Form into patties.
- Fry over medium heat until lightly browned on both sides.
- Drain and pat with paper towels before serving.
I didn't have any problem whatsoever with getting these to hold together. But be warned, these are very rich and very salty when prepared as written. I was thinking the garlic salt AND salt would be overkill, but the reviews were so good that I did it anyway. It was overkill. Way overkill. Everyone liked them, but they were so salty and rich that you really have a difficult time finishing off the one, and forget about eating two. If I were to make this again, I would use minced garlic instead of the garlic salt. It was so rich that I would try to lighten it up a bit, too. Unfortunately, that means using a shredded roasted chicken instead, or something of the like. Kind of defeats the purpose of the ease of canned chicken, but I think it would work out a little more tasty. To each their own, I guess! Still glad I tried it. Every recipe can be a learning experience. Thanks for sharing.
My family loves these things. I find they hold together better if I put a can of cream of chicken in the mixture. Mine seem to turn out a little dry so we eat them with chicken gravy on top.
I'm giving these 5 stars because of how easy and versatile they are. They are made with items that are generally in my cupboard, which is a plus on busy nights. They were also very good as leftovers. The night I made them, I did not want anything that was in the shape of a burger or a patty so I made them into croquette shapes. They were shaped like long marshmallows. I would like to have a great sauce to dip them in or to drizzle over them. I will be making these again.
