I've never had croquettes before but have always been intrigued by the idea. We thought they were great. I used cream of chicken with herbs soup. I poached 2 smallish boneless breast halves in chicken stock and a little lemon juice with a couple sprigs of fresh rosemary, thyme, sage leaves, a bay leaf and a couple whole peppercorns. Removed the chicken and chopped very finely. In a tsp of butter I lightly sauteed the onion, celery, a minced clove of garlic and poultry seasoning. Mixed the chicken, soup, bread crumbs, onion-celery-garlic-poultry seasoning mixture all together and formed into 6 small patties about 1/2 thick. Then into the fridge for an hour. Made the sauce with the remaining soup, half n half, and a little more poultry seasoning. Pressed the patties into the italian bread crumbs and fried until browned over medium heat in 2 tablespoons butter with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Served over garlic mashed red skinned potatoes. At 3 a pc, my BF and I easily finished the entire single recipe. They were rich and filling. Not a meal we'll have all the time, but certainly on the list for those nights when we need some real comfort food.
