This recipe is a great way to use that leftover chicken from Sunday's dinner or you can start with the chicken and cook it especially for this tempting dinner. Your family will be very impressed with your presentation on this one. I also recommend this recipe for using the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving Day.

  1. White Sauce: Microwave the butter for one minute on high, then add the flour and seasonings. Whisk together, then cook one more minute in the microwave, gradually stir in the milk or half & half. Microwave on high about another three minutes or until the sauce thickens. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool.
  2. Coquettes: Shred the cooked turkey and add the white sauce. Taking an approximate 3 oz. portion in palm of your hand, form into a ball, then roll the croquette in seasoned bread crumbs. You should have 12 to 14 croquettes when completed. Fry the croquettes until golden brown, about five to ten minutes total for both sides.
  3. Repeat instructions for White Sauce, add peas to finished sauce and pour warm over Coquettes just before serving.

Alternative in Oven

My mother always made her coquettes in the oven. She formed her coquettes into peaks. She would place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 350° until they were golden brown. You don't want to over bake them because you don't want them to be dry.

Another alternative is to use Turkey instead of the chicken for those Thanksgiving leftovers.
