Our wise grandmothers were adept at cooking, a masterful way to avoid throwing food away. Therefore, for this recipe for homemade chicken croquettes you can use the leftover chicken from a stew or stew. Having said that, finely chop the onion and chop the cooked chicken breast.
Heat the butter in a pan and, once melted, sauté the onion stirring occasionally for 3 minutes over medium low heat. Don't let it get too brown.
Add salt, pepper and nutmeg and keep stirring to let it fry for 2 more minutes. Of course, do not let the onion stick, it is preferable that it be done slowly so that it releases all its water and is tender but not dry.
Incorporate into the sofrito 3 tablespoons of flour and mix. This step is very important so that it is integrated and the flour does not taste raw. Continue to cook the dough for the chicken croquettes on low for 2 minutes.
Slowly pour the milk while stirring to prevent lumps from forming. If the bechamel requires more milk you can add it, for this try that the milk is at room temperature or warm.
Try to make the béchamel consistency similar to that of a porridge. After about 3 minutes and when the bechamel bubbles, add the chicken breast and stir. When it is well integrated, remove the pan from the heat and test for salt if you need one more point.
Leave the dough for the croquettes in a container and cover it with a cloth or plastic wrap. It is recommended to let it cool down so that after forming the croquettes they are whole and do not melt when fried. Once this time has passed, form the croquettes with your hands and run them through beaten egg and breadcrumbs.
Grandma's homemade croquettes have always been cooked fried, so heat up half a liter of sunflower oil and, when very hot, fry the croquettes in batches so that they are loose and do not stick. Flip until golden brown on both sides.
Trick: Leave them on a plate with kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
Nothing better than some freshly made warm croquettes, and more if you prepared them with your own hands and all the love in the world. As this is a traditional recipe, we recommend serving the Grandma's Homemade Chicken Nuggets with a little mayonnaise sauce, which is another of the kitchen classics from all over the world.
