Chicken Croquettes


There are so many ways that you can cook chicken. This dish was a classic dish prepared by the ole’ Cajun farmers wives when the workers and her husband came out of the fields.


  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 2 cups diced chicken
  • 1/8 tsp celery salt
  • 1/8 tsp onion salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • Sifted dry bread crumbs
  • Oil for frying


Step 1

Mix the flour and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually add the milk. Add the butter and cook over moderate heat (keep stirring) until thick.

Step 2

Then add the 2 cups diced chicken and celery salt. Cool.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, beat the egg and milk together.

Step 4

Shape the chicken mixture into croquettes. Roll first in the breadcrumbs then in the beating egg mixture and again in the crumbs. Chill in refrigerator.

Step 5

Heat the oil in a deep pan to 375 degrees (hot enough to brown a one inch cube of bread in 40 seconds). Use enough oil to fill the pan then place the croquettes in a wire basket until golden brown.

Step 6

Serve hot with a medium white sauce.
