I was introduced to the little bites of heaven about fifteen or so years ago by my mother in law. She had made these for a dinner party and it was love at first bite. I added a few more spices to it and I am even more smitten then I was before! The delicately spiced chicken and potatoes, the melted cheese and the slight crunch of the coating make this quite possibly the best croquette ever!
