More Delicious Austerity

I got this from the WorldWide Recipes newsletter. The poster (who identified herself as Valerie) said it was from her grandmother's WWII cookbook. I make it a lot and absolutely LOVE it!

Chicken Croquettes

Oven Temp: 450F

1/2 C mayonnaise
1/2 tsp salt & 1/8 tsp pepper
1 T diced onion
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 T minced parsley
2 T cold water
2 C cooked cubed chicken
1 C soft bread crumbs or cooked rice
1 C finely sifted dried bread crumbs

Mix mayonnaise and seasonings in a bowl. Gradually stir in water.
Add chicken and soft bread crumbs (or rice). Mix with fork. Let
stand 5 minutes. Shape into 6 - 7 croquettes. Roll each in the
dried bread crumbs. Place on foil on a baking sheet. Bake 15 - 20
minutes or until browned.Hoorah for the women (heck, for the cooks of any gender) who could take what my family calls scrips and scraps and make food that's not only nourishing but enticing and satisfying.

These sounds like gourmet chicken mcnuggets! Which, considering how much I like those evil little buggers, is a GOOD thing!
