Manchego and Serrano Croquettes Recipe Instructions

  • 1/4 cup Panko
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp. dry white wine
  • 9 oz. chicken breast, chopped
  • 4 slices Serrano ham, chopped
  • ¼ cup Manchego cheese, grated

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix the Panko with the milk, 1 tbsp. white wine, chicken, Serrano, Manchego, egg, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and mix with a wooden spoon. Note: you can also use a food processor.
