 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Cooked chicken; chopped
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Celery seed
  • 1 ds Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ts Lemon juice
  • 1 ts Grated onions
  • 1 ts Fresh parsley; minced

  • 1 lg Egg

* See White Sauce recipe.

1. In a heavy skillet or in the top of double boiler, place 4 tablespoons
margarine or butter and 4 tablespoons flour. Heat and blend well, then
using a wire whisk, beat in 1 cup milk slowly. Continue cooking and
stirring until thick; about 2 minutes after it reaches a boil. Season with
freshly ground black pepper and salt if desired. 2. Croquettes: Combine all
ingredients except sauce and breading ingredients. Add enough sauce to keep
mixture soft but stiff enough to hold its shape. 3. Breading: Place in
small bowl 1 egg beaten slightly with 2 tablespoons water or oil. Place in
a flat plate or small bowl about 1 cup bread or cracker crumbs. 4. Shape
chicken mixture into croquettes. Roll croquettes carefully in the crumbs,
then dip in egg, then again in crumbs. Place on waxed paper on a cookie
sheet and refrigerate 30 minutes. 5. Heat oil to 390 degrees in a deep
fryer or large heavy pan. Deep fry croquettes until golden brown. Drain on
paper towels. Serve as is or with a cream sauce.

Serving Ideas : Serve with baked acorn squash and a green vegetable.
