1 chicken, approximately 1 kg / 2 lb 3 oz
100g / 4 oz white bread
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
4-5 tbsp butter
Singe, gut and wash chicken. Remove meat together with skin from bones and pass it through a meat grinder. Add white bread soaked in milk, pass through a meat grinder one more time, add some heated butter, salt and mix. Divide this force meat into croquettes and coat them in breadcrumbs. Fry croquettes in butter on both sides in a frying pan for 4-5 minutes, until caramelized crust forms. Then put frying pan with croquettes in oven for 5 minutes or cover with lid and leave on low heat for some time.
When serving, place croquettes on a plate and pour over with melted butter. Different vegetables can be served as garnish: sweat peas, beans, cauliflower – boiled and buttered, and also fried potatoes.
Remaining bones and giblets can be used to make broth.
