Best Easy Chicken Croquettes

Sharing is caring!

My mom used to get chicken croquettes at a fancy restaurant when she was a young woman. I made these once for Mother’s Day. She loved them.


  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped, cooked chicken meat
  • ¼ cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • ½ cup milk
  • ⅛ tablespoon poultry seasoning
  • ½ cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs, for rolling


Combine 1/3 cup of the soup, chicken, bread crumbs, celery, onion and 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning. Mix well and shape into 6 croquettes (I make patties). Chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour.

Remove croquettes from refrigerator and roll in additional bread crumbs. In a large skillet, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons shortening. Brown the croquettes in the shortening. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining soup, milk and 1/8 teaspoon poultry seasoning. Heat over low, stirring occasionally. Serve sauce over croquettes.
