Chicken Croquettes

Serves 3-4

2 cups finely diced cooked chicken or turkey
2 tablespoons grated or very finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cups fresh breadcrumbs
Oil for frying

Mix together chicken and onion. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir briskly to make a roux. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly until thickened and all lumps are dissolved. Cook for about 3 minutes but do not brown. Add salt and pepper; remove from heat and let cool. Stir in the chicken mixture, lemon juice, and parsley; combine well. Place in refrigerator until chilled.

Heat oil in large fry pan over medium-high heat. Form the chicken mixture into cutlets. Dip each into the beaten egg and then the breadcrumbs. Fry until browned on both sides.
