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 deshebrado
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 packages cream cheese, cut into cubes and softened
  • pending


Boil the chicken stock in a large pot and add the flour little by little. Stir without stopping for 2 or 3 minutes until a dough forms. Let cool.
In a little oil, cook the chopped onion and red pepper until cooked. Add the chicken and the chopped parsley and mix everything. Add the cream cheese and stir.
Work the prepared dough for a few minutes (on a flat, floured surface) until it is smooth. Divide the dough into 12 parts. And with a roller it forms "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. Form the croquettes so that they are shaped like chicken thighs.
Heat the oil in a medium-high medium saucepan until the temperature is ready to fry. Fry the croquettes for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Drain the croquettes on paper towels.
