Chicken Croquettes

Make ahead appetiser / starter recipes is something that I always look out for. It comes handy when you are in a mood for a quick snack but feel lazy to make it or when you have some unexpected guests. For me, make ahead starter is really appealing when I plan a party, I've one thing less to worry about.

I think I've told you before also, I look forward to the appetisers and desserts in any party. Main course, is not my thing ;) This is a simple and easy one to make, what I like most about this is, there isn't much chopping involved. If you look at the ingredients list, you'll understand that it's just a great combo and you cant go wrong with it.

Also, can I say one more thing, without sounding preachy? If you are in the habit of buying frozen nuggets for your kids, this is a very good option instead of the frozen item. It wont take much time to make and you can store it in the freezer, just thaw the required portions and use it. I served it to kids for a party and they enjoyed it very much.

It's my go to appetiser these days and I find it really hard to keep my hands off the mixture while rolling it ;) It's a great dish for a potluck party too.

Hope I've convinced you enough, to give it a try ;)

      • Tried it! Was good Maria!! Though I doubt I made some mistakes in btw!! My maida got thick very fast so I added alot more maida n milk. N then wen I added cheese, it became loose!! So it wasn’t very cheesy! Will this b very cheesy inside? Also, wat shud I do to keep it hot n crisp for longer Tim???

        • Thanks! The white sause tends to get thick as soon as you add milk, you need to add the milk gradually and eventually it becomes saucy consistency. It’s not too cheesy. Cheese is added as a flavouring. You can preheat the oven for 3-4 mins and store inside the pre heated oven till you serve. It should help to retain the crispiness for sometime.

  1. Hi Maria, I tried it out for a tea party and my Swiss neighbours really liked it. My 10 year old son loved it. The plate became empty within no time. Thanks Maria….

  2. Hi Maria,just wanted to check whether I could freeze it after rolling in bread crumbs and thaw it and fry it later?.Was planning it as an appetizer for a Christmas get together this Sunday.Also can I use the dried parsley instead of the fresh one?

    • Hi Sherin,

      Yes, you can do that. I always do that. Just make sure you thaw it nicely before frying it. You can thaw it by keeping in the fridge overnight or by keeping at room temp for 1-2 hrs.


      • Hi Maria,Thanks for the reply.I made that for the Christmas get together and it was a big hit specially among the kids.I also made the Malabar chicken Biriyani and pineapple praline cake as the dessert that day.The cake was super yummy and the biryani too.I have made the biryani many times before with chicken and mutton and it’s a sure success all the time.Thanks a lot for all these wonderful recipes.

  3. Hello Maria, If I roll the croquettes in bread crumbs and refrigerate it today, will it come out well if I fry them tomorrow morning? I am doubtful as am planning only to refrigerate and not freeze it.
