RECIPE - Chicken Croquettes
These delicious easy chicken croquettes are a great recipe for using up leftover chicken. The chicken is mixed with onions, dried sage, and seasonings, before being coated in crisp breadcrumbs and fried. The resulting croquette is salty and crispy on the outside with a deliciously soft juicy sage spiked chicken center. Perfect as an appetizer with a dipping sauce, or serve these with white gravy and homestyle mashed potatoes.

For the mixture
- ½ onion (white/brown/yellow/red)
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 cup cooked chicken
- 2 tbsp breadcrumbs (regular or panko)
- ¼ tsp ground sage
- ¼ tsp salt
- pinch of pepper
- 1 egg
To coat and fry
- 4 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
- Oil for frying
Finely chop the onion.
Add the oil to a frying pan and cook the onions until they are soft and starting to colour.
Place the chicken into a food processor, along with the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and sage.
Blitz until everything is chopped. Add the onion mixture and pulse again.
Check your seasoning. It might need more salt.
Once you are happy with the flavor, crack in the egg and then whizz until you have a thick paste.
Fill a shallow bowl with a little water. Wet your fingers and take a teaspoon of the mixture. Roll it to form a ball and set aside on a plate.
Repeat until all of the mixture has gone. (approximately 20 balls).
Tip the panko into a small bowl and carefully add a chicken ball, juggle the bowl about, rolling the ball until it is well coated.
Place it back on the plate and coat all of the croquettes.
