Ingredients

Chicken croquettes:

  • 300g cooked and shredded chicken thighs* (or use chicken leftovers)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • 2 medium eggs
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Salad dressing:

  • 1 medium soft boiled egg
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Salad:

  • 100g spinach
  • 1 small head lettuce

*Cook the chicken thighs 12-15 minutes in a saucepan with the chicken stock. This way chicken will be rich in flavor. Cool and shred until you have 1 ½ cups.

 

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken meat, coconut oil, almond butter, garlic, parsley, and cream cheese. Season to taste.
  2. Cover the mixture with a plastic foil and refrigerate until firm.
  3. Once the mixture is firm, shape it into 12 balls.
  4. Heat 2-inches oil in a skillet.
  5. Place almond flour into a shallow dish. Beat egg into a separate shallow dish.
  6. Dip the balls into egg and roll through the almond flour.
  7. Fry the croquette in the heated oil, 2-3 minutes or until golden. Transfer the croquettes to a paper-lined
  8. Make the dressing; combine soft-boiled egg, mustard and lemon juice in a food blender until smooth. Set the blender to a low speed and stream in in olive oil. Blend until emulsified (like the mayonnaise). Stir in the parmesan and chill 10 minutes in a fridge.
  9. To serve; combine spinach and lettuce leaves in a large bowl. Add croquettes and top with a prepared dressing.
  10. Serve salad and three croquettes per portion. Enjoy.
