About this recipe:A mixture of chicken, eggs, breadcrumbs, sauteed onion, parsley and seasoning make croquettes you'll go crazy over! My gran used to make salmon cakes; I adapted that recipe to use leftover cooked chicken.
425g cooked, finely chopped chicken meat
175g dried breadcrumbs
2 to 3 lightly beaten eggs
325g sauteed chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon dried Italian herb seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
oil for pan frying as needed
Method Prep:15min › Cook:30min › Ready in:45min
In a large bowl combine the chicken, breadcrumbs, 2 eggs and onion and mix well; if mixture is too dry to form patties, mix in another lightly beaten egg. Then add parsley, herb seasoning, salt and pepper to taste, mix well and form into small patties.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and fry patties in oil until golden brown.
