Homemade Chicken and Apple Croquettes

I’m not a fan of store-bought chicken nuggets.  Do those things even have much chicken in them?  Meh.

This recipe is surprisingly easy and is just mixing up a bit of fresh chicken and apple!  Try it!  It’s easy! And they are so yummy!  This is also a very adaptable recipe, if you like, add a little garlic and onion and make larger ‘patties’ so that you can have chicken and apple rissoles.  For something with a bit more of a ‘flavour impact’, add a little grated fresh ginger!


  1. Break up the chicken mix in a bowl.

  2. Mix in the egg, chopped parsley, grated cheese and grated apple.  Mix well.

  3. If the mixture is too wet, add a little of the breadcrumbs until the mixture is sticky, but not wet.

  4. Grab teaspoon amounts of the mix and roll into a ball with your hands.

  5. Roll into the breadcrumbs and place on a plate.

  6. Refrigerate for 30 minutes (this allows the crumbs to stay on during cooking)

  7. Either bake on a lined baking tray for 25 minutes or deep fry for 6 minutes each.

  8. Serve warm with some hummus
