“Dark or white skinless cooked chicken will work for this. You will love these! Plan ahead the chicken mixture needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours before shaping and frying. Make certain to finely chop the cooked chicken, if possible use a herb-flavored crouton, make your own or use purchased, you can process the croutons on a food processor if desired, I have made this recipe many times, they are *very* good! :)”
