    • You’re welcome! I love to just eat the dark meat and always use the white meat for recipes such as this. The Croquettes are small and this recipe fed 2 adults and 2 small children but we could have had more. It used 1 chicken breast so next time I will use both breasts and double the recipe. Thank you!

    • I found these so easy because I used leftover cooked chicken. It was even easier because I bought rotisserie chicken from Sam’s Club…lol That is the one thing I can buy that is cheaper already cooked than if I buy it uncooked and I just love the flavor! One of my weaknesses…lol As for chicken salad, give me a croissant or a bed of lettuce and I will devour it..lol

      • They have terrific deals on the rotisserie chicken at Meijers sometimes … and, sometimes I’ll be there doing my shopping, and the smell of that chicken just travels through the store – it invites you to pick up a package. Yes, it sure is better than having all that mess. My mom used to make cornish hens for special occasions and she’d stuff them with wild rice and raisins and mushrooms. They were so delicious but they would splatter all over the place and she’d say “never again” … then it would be Christmas and she’d forget she said that.

      • Mom’s are like that…lol I love Cornish game hen and made them all the time before I was married. My husband said they aren’t worth all the trouble because there’s not enough meat! So it’s always whole chicken in my house.

      • Yes, they are a lot of work and certainly not enough to even make a sandwich afterward. My father liked duck, but he liked dark meat and my mom and I preferred white meat.
        My mom used to say it was quite greasy to make roast duck. (I don’t know – I watched, I ate, and I helped with dishes only; she always shooed me out of the kitchen.)
