This recipe for chicken croquettes, also known as coxinhas, are pieces of dough stuffed with chicken that are fried. This is a typical Brazilian street dish and ideal to prepare during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil as a snack to watch a game. In this recipe they have a little cream cheese to give them a special touch.

Ingredients

12 portions
  • 2 cups chicken soup
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 3 cups oil
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 packages cream cheese, diced and softened
  • 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a large pot and add the flour a little at a time. Stir non-stop for 2-3 minutes until a dough forms. Let cool.
In a little oil, cook the chopped onion and red pepper until they are cooked. Add the chicken, the chopped parsley, the mozzarella cheese and mix everything. Add the cream cheese and stir.
Work the prepared dough for a few minutes (on a flat, floured surface) until smooth. Divide the dough into 12 parts. And with a rolling pin, form "discs" of dough that are about 20 cm in diameter. Place a few tablespoons of chicken filling in the center of each disk and wrap with the rest of the dough so that it is well sealed. Shape the patties into the shape of chicken thighs.
Heat the oil in a medium medium-high saucepan until the temperature is ready to fry. Fry the croquettes for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Drain the croquettes on paper towels.
