Directions

  1. In a small skillet, sauté the chopped onion and garlic in a small amount of olive oil until soft and set aside.


  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, breadcrumbs, cheese and 3 eggs, mixing well. Test mixture to make sure it can be formed into patties. If it seems dry, add another egg or a bit of chicken broth.


  3. Add parsley, onions, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper to the bowl and mix together well.


  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium in a large skillet. Form mixture into small patties or balls and fry until golden brown. Remove and set on a paper towel to drain.


  5. Tip: You can also bake croquettes instead of frying. Simply place them on a baking sheet and cook at 350°F for 30 minutes.


  6. Tip: Create your own Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs by using a combination of basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and Parmesan.
