Chicken Croquettes, THM S, Gluten Free, Sugar-free, Keto, Low carb

Chicken Croquettes—did you know you can make them at home? It is really not that hard, either! This is one of the best ways to use up leftover cooked chicken or turkey.

Traditionally croquettes are deep fried but with this recipe they are just baked. The plus side is you don’t have a greasy mess to clean up and the pork rinds still give the croquettes a crusty coating.

Cooked chicken is finely chopped in a food processor or ground in a meat grinder. The meat is seasoned with spices, onions, and celery. Milk, oat flour, and butter are blended together and cooked until thickened. The white sauce and mixed with the ground meat. Your mixture may appear a bit soupy but its okay. Refrigerate the meat mixture for at least 4-5 hours or overnight. It must be thoroughly chilled.

When you are ready to shape the croquettes, remove the mixture from the fridge. Use 1/4 cup of meat and shape into balls. You should have 12 balls.

Roll each ball into the oat flour. You want the flout to be coating the entire ball. I roll all the croquettes before I move to the next step.

Dip each croquette into the beaten egg mixture and immediately into the crushed pork rinds. Your croquette should look like the one pictured below. Place the croquettes on a baking sheet a few inches apart.

Repeat the coating directions above until all croquettes are coated with crushed pork rinds.

I know if anyone starts counting how many croquettes there are on this baking sheet they will know I made more than one batch; our family eats them so quickly. These croquettes are going into the oven to be baked at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Don’t these croquettes look delicious! You can serve them with chicken gravy or my family uses ketchup.
