  Ground cooked chicken 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Soft bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Minced onion 1 Tablespoon
  Minced green pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Savory 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1 Dash
  Chopped blanched toasted almonds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dry bread crumbs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Veloute sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Combine chicken, soft bread crumbs, eggs, 2 tablespoons milk, onion, green pepper, salt, savory, pepper, and almonds in medium-size bowl; chill about 2 hours.
Shape into 8 cylindrical croquettes, each 1 inch in diameter; roll in fine dry bread crumbs; dip in 1/2 cup milk; roll again in crumbs; brush off loose crumbs.
Heat fat in deep heavy kettle to 365° or 375 (a 1-inch cube of bread will brown in about 1 minute).
Fry croquettes, 2 or 3 at a time, 2 minutes, or until golden-brown; drain on absorbent paper.
Serve on heated platter with Veloute Sauce.
