Chicken and Cheese Croquettes Recipe
1/4 cup Olive Oil or Corn Oil
1 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups finely shredded cheese
1/4 kilo chicken, finely chopped
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 large eggs
2 cups unseasoned dry bread crumbs
Corn or Pure Vegetable Oil, for frying
Heat olive oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in milk. Cook until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese, chicken, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Spread mixture onto a dinner plate. Chill until firm.
Beat eggs lightly in medium bowl. Place bread crumbs in another medium bowl. Shape chicken mixture into 1-inch balls or 2-inch long ovals or cylinders. Dip each croquette in bread crumbs to coat. Roll in beaten egg, then return to bread crumbs and roll until coated on all sides. Chill 1 hour.
Heat 3/4-inch vegetable oil in medium heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook croquettes in oil, a few at a time, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Serve warm with ketchup or tahini sauce.:)
