I love this recipe. It really reminds me of my grandmother. She used to make these for me because she knew I love them. Even now that i don’t live in Catalonia (Spain), when I go, she makes them for me (I am a little spoiled by her 🙂 ).
The beauty of this recipe is that you don’t have to buy the chicken just for the croquettes. The tradition of the recipe (at least in my family) is that you would make vegetable soup and add some chicken to get some flavor. Once the soup was ready you would take the chicken out and use it for croquettes. Even if you roast chicken and have leftovers, it will work! Or you can simply make them just because! 😉
If you don’t eat chicken, you can totally change it for something else… I love blue cheese, cod, mushroom croquettes…
I don’t eat a lot of chicken but when I do, I always try to make extra so I can make croquettes. Just a few days ago, I roasted some chicken and I used the leftovers for the recipe (really worth it!).
This recipe is super easy and super cheap.
