Slideshow: Fried Foods


  1. 1 cup mashed potatoes

  2. 1 cup chopped cooked chicken

  3. 2 small shallots, minced

  4. 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  5. 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives

  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  8. 2 tablespoons plain dry bread crumbs, plus more for dredging

  9. Canola oil, for frying

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with the chicken, shallots, egg, chives, salt, pepper and the 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Form the chicken mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick patties. Dredge the patties in bread crumbs and transfer them to the baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil until shimmering. Fry the croquettes over moderately high heat, turning once, until golden and hot throughout, 4 to 6 minutes total. Transfer to paper towels to drain; serve hot.
