Chicken Croquettes

"Dark or white skinless cooked chicken will work for this. You will love these! Plan ahead the chicken mixture needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours before shaping and frying. Make certain to finely chop the cooked chicken, if possible use a herb-flavored crouton, make your own or use purchased, you can process the croutons on a food processor if desired, I have made this recipe many times, they are *very* good! :)"

    This just did not turn out tasting good at all. I am sorry to say that as a croquette lover I did not like this at all.

    Much like 2Bleu, this is a "fond memory recipe" for me as well. My grandmother used to make these using canned salmon and they were wonderful! I don't actually like salmon any other way because of its pungent taste/odor. Thanks for posting this great recipe! I may just have to whip up a batch!

    This recipe made it into Book #179627 Kittencal, Thanks so much for this recipe. My mom passed away in April, and she used to make these for me as a kid. When I asked her for the recipe years later, she unfortunatly had forgotten it. This is a close second for her recipe. I will cherish it always. Thanks again. Bird
