One of my favorite things to eat is roasted chicken.
I’m one of those chicken eaters that can’t go into Costco or Sam’s Club and not pick up a couple of roasted chickens.
My chicken issues often leave me with loads of leftover roasted chicken that I often use to make these delicious Chicken Croquettes with Sriracha Mayo!
I’m so in love with roasted chicken that even when I am at the store shopping for fresh chickens to make my own roasted chicken at home, I still pick up precooked roasted chickens!
It’s a trap people! Costco and Sam’s Club have rows of those juicy roasted chickens just starring at me every time I walk into the store.
Their screaming Lisa, buy me…no Lisa, buy two of me!
Yep…in that order, lol!
I told you I have roasted chicken issues.
Thank God I’m creative and know my way around leftover chicken.
These croquettes will give you a reason to become a roasted chicken addict, just like me!
First, I remove the skin from the chickens and place the chicken into my blender.
I like to use the blender because it processes the chicken just like I like it, slightly chunky!
Why use a knife when you can just blend it or use a food processor?
Secondly, I add the chicken to a bowl and add all my ingredients into the bowl.
Mayo, lots of spices, crushed buttery crackers, panko, and a little onion.
I use around a 1/2 or larger measuring cup to form my patties.
You can make these babies as big or as small as you like.
Just don’t forget to adjust the cooking time depending on the size.
Lastly, cook these babies up in extra virgin olive oil and a little butter if you dare!
When I’m being good I omit the butter and they’re still delicious.
Now mix up your Sriracha and mayo and start eating.
A little heads up!
Leftovers were used to make a burger on a toasted buttered hamburger bun and a slice of pepper jack cheese!
Yep, Big Goo’s idea and it’s a winner!
