Make this Chicken Croquettes; despite being delicious this is also a very easy and quick appetizer to serve. It took me just about 15-20 minutes and I had the sizzling hot chicken croquettes ready to serve!
  Coarsely ground cooked chicken 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Soft bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 2 , well beaten
  Milk 10 Tablespoon
  Minced onion 1 Tablespoon
  Minced green pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Savory 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1 Dash
  Finely chopped blanched toasted almonds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Melted shortening/Lard / salad oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (To Make A 3 Inch Depth In Kettle)
  Veloute sauce 4 Tablespoon (adjust quantity as needed)

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 a heated platter with Veloute Sauce.
