Do you know why I love this recipe because all you have to do is throw the ingredients in a bowl, mix well, shape well, coat well, fry well and live happy. So quick, simple; homemade cooking has just became so easy and fun. Let’s not forget the tasty component.

Let me take you from the start, in a bowl that is big and shallow, add in cooked shredded chicken, mashed potatoes, grated mozzarella cheese, grated parmesan cheeses, salt according to taste, parsley and mix well. Make sure that all the ingredients have combined well. Know you will notice that all the colors of all the ingredients have mixed well.

 I have used these lists of ingredients but you are welcome to add more components if you want. I would recommend adding spinach and any of your favorite vegetables. After this step is done using your hands and specially the palms and fingers, grab two to three tablespoons of the mixture. Depending on the size you prefer, you can decrease or increase a tablespoon according to your taste.

Aftet that give it a ball shape and then slowly by slowly shape it into a croquette, by rolling the ball in your hands in a way that it gives a croquette shape. If you find that the mixture is not forming into a proper croquette than add in an egg. When the croquettes are shaped dip them into plain flour. Know remove any excess flour and then dip into beaten eggs.

 Lastly coat the croquettes into the breadcrumbs. Make sure that the breadcrumbs perfectly cover the croquettes. The breadcrumbs give the croquettes a delicious and crispy outer layer. After when you are done coating the croquettes, deep fry on medium to high flame. It is important that you set your oil temperature medium to high and not just high because the croquettes may only fry from the outside not from the inside.

When the oil is heated medium to high, gently drop in the croquettes one by one using your hands and fry them until each side is golden-ish brown. While this step you may have to switch sides and continuously flip the croquettes.

Take out the croquettes and place them on top of a paper towel so the excess oil could be drained from the croquettes. Set aside for 2 to 3 minutes and know you are ready to dish your handsome croquettes.
