|3 1/2 Cups||Water*|
|3 Cups||Finely Cubed Chicken|
|2||Maggi Cubes, crushed or 1tsp Maggi Seasoning|
|1/2 Cup||Margarine or Butter|
|2 Cups||Seasoned Breadcrumbs|

*Pre-made or store-bought vegetable or chicken broth can also be used

Chop and cook first 3 ingredients in 3 1/2 cups water. Drain and discard vegetables, reserving stock. You can also use pre-made vegetable or chicken stock or broth.
Melt margarine or butter, and add flour, stirring vigorously. Add stock slowly, making a smooth paste. Add chicken and seasonings. Cook until heated through, 2-3 minutes.
Spread in a plastic wrapped large loaf pan and place in refrigerator 3-4 hours. You can also just spread mixture on a platter and allow to cool. Remove from pan and plastic, and slice into croquette sized pieces or form into croquettes, depending which method you choose.
Dip in beaten egg, then breadcrumbs. Fry in hot oil (350-375) for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Serve hot with your choice of mustard!
