Cheese filled chicken croquettes||Ideal party starters||easy to make

This recipe makes flavorful chicken or turkey croquettes that are crisp on the outside but moist on the inside.

This is such kind of recipe which you can make with left over chicken also, specially if it is a rotisserie chicken.

But I make it fresh from scratch. I keep the croquettes moist from inside by adding some gooey cheese to it,and who doesn’t like cheese where it bursts into the mouth while biting into crunchy chicken croquettes.

It is a hit item when I welcome my guests with this kind of appetisers. It also doesn’t needs much effort that needs to be mentioned…..
