Chicken CroquettesBeing Dutch Born and raised, I love these tasty Croquettes, they are great for buffets or just as a different starter, enjoy! Ingredients 300g cooked chicken 60g butter 80g flour 400ml chicken stock 1 tsp ground nutmeg Salt & pepper 2 eggs, whisked Flour, for covering croquettes Oil for frying Cream, optional Method •    Melt the butter, then add the flour and mix thoroughly. Add the stock bit by bit and stir well to avoid any lumps. When all the stock is added leave to cook for a further 5 minutes. •    Add seasoning and add the nutmeg and a little cream, add the chicken. •    Pour onto a flat dish and leave to cool. •    Make croquette shapes (about eight) and pass through the flour, then eggs and then the breadcrumbs. •    Chill for an hour, if you have time. •    Heat oil in a frying pan (or fryer) Fry croquettes in hot oil for 5 minutes or until light brown. (Handle croquettes carefully so crust is not punctured). Drain on paper towels.
