This breadcrumbed fried food roll recipe comes from Rebato’s, a tapas bar in London. The chef there makes croquettes with a number of different flavorings; this version uses chicken.
Ingredients: Chicken Croquettes Recipe
1 boneless chicken breast with skin, diced
2 tbsp butter
¼ cup plain flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 small egg, beaten
1 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
Salt and black pepper
Oil for deep drying
Parsley sprigs, to garnish
Lemon wedges, to serve
Preparation Method: Chicken Croquettes Recipe
Liquefy the butter in a small pan. Add the plain flour and cook it gently, keep stirring, for 1 minute. Gradually beat in the milk to make a smooth, very thick sauce. Cover with a lid and remove from the pan from the heat.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the chicken with the garlic for 5 minutes until the chicken is lightly browned and cooked through.
Shift the cooked chicken from frying pan into a blender or food processor and process until finely chopped. Stir the chicken into the sauce and mix it well. Add salt and black pepper as per the taste. Leave to cool completely.
Shape into 8 even size sausages then dip in the beaten egg and then breadcrumbs. Deep-fry in hot oil for 4 minutes until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper and serve Chicken Croquettes garnished with parsley and lemon wedges.
