Final illustrated recipe.

My family has a tradition of making Chicken (or turkey, just after Thanksgiving) Croquettes around holidays or family gatherings. They are basically minced poultry in a bechamel sauce, then formed into balls and fried. Amazingly tasty, and a common request when we all get together. I’ve started making them myself and have my mom’s old family recipe so I wanted to illustrate it since I was enjoying the meal over a recent post-Thanksgiving. The final recipe is on the website They Draw & Cook.
