Chicken Croquettes Recipe: Spanish Croquetas

Chicken Croquettes Recipe: Spanish Croquetas

Croquetas! Who doesn’t love them? In Spain they are, after a tapa de Jamon, the absolute kings of Tapas, and every bar or restaurant has them in the menu.

There are several types, but it comes down to Croquetas de Jamon (Ham Croquettes) or Croquetas de Pollo (Chicken Croquettes). It’s not an easy recipe, but if you have leftover chicken and want to try them, this is the recipe, enjoy!croquettes-yummy

I have to say that this time the result was specially amazing, they tasted so good…  and lasted so little…. :)

This is a super recommended recipe if you have family or friend visiting and you want to surprise them with a Spanish Classic.

Hi tapas lovers.

Maria and myself just came back from walking el Camino de Santiago (primitivo route). During such an amazing trip we made very special friends and shared plenty of Tartas de Santiago. To them, our new “Familia” and to all the Peregrinos of the world, we want to dedicate this post and this recipe, the authentic stuff. From Spain with love.

Hi Tapas fans, how are things?

Few months ago we blogged about Pinchos and promised to do some Pinchos (or Pintxos) bar review. This weekend Maria and myself realized that we had a Pintxos Bar just around the corner: The Pix-Bar. So we decided to go for dinner and have a look. This is our review.
