Leftover Chicken Croquettes

This is a great way to use up leftover chicken. It's very simple but has a ton of flavor. My kids loved to dip them in ketchup. Makes 6 servings.


3 cups cooked, finely chopped chicken meat
1 1/2 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sauteed chopped onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


In a large bowl combine the chicken, bread crumbs, 2 eggs and onion and mix well; if mixture is too dry to form patties, mix in another lightly beaten egg. Then add parsley, salt and pepper to taste, mix well and form into small patties.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and fry patties in oil until golden brown.
