    I love croquettes....make them with leftover turkey every Thanksgiving. I do happen to have some leftover chicken staring me down in the frig, this might be the perfect recipe to use up the cooked meat. Good stuff, thanks for the reminder.

    This sounds great. There is always leftover chicken and this sounds like a great recipe to make use of them.

    Ohhhhh, my yesss!! LOVE chicken croquettes! I had them quite often as a child in Ohio. One time I had them at a diner in Iowa. Theirs were made into little "pone" shapes and smothered in a light yellow creamy gravy. I'll never forget those...
