I love this but have hard time with em falling apart

Paula, Love your recipes. Just a note on this one in particular. As I am gluten intolerant and my husband has high cholesterol, I made a few adjustments and these croquettes were still delicious!! In place of the butter, I used fat free Pam Olive Oil spray. This worked perfectly for both the vegetables and the frying of the croquettes. Also, in place of the Panko bread crumbs, I used Rice Krispies. The only change I will make the next time is to crush the Rice Krispies before I use them. It was pretty funny though hearing them "snap, crackle, and pop" in the mix!! Thanks for this awesome recipe using chicken and with a few tweeks, it was a great meal for those of us who have to watch what we eat. Cheryl Hollingsworth

I admire your warmth, sense of humor but and most of all that you keep the family together with lots of love!!! A few years ago I lived in several cities in the USA, I tasted the real and traditional american food and was delicius, my husband and one of my two sons live in Denver, every time that I go up there I try to speak and practice my english but every body speak spanish, so I hope you don´t have trouble reading my comment. Love you Paula and thank God there is still people like you in these crazy times. Ana Solano

These croquettes were wonderful. But I think the sauce was actually the bigger hit with my family. I have to keep some made up in a canning jar for them to use now!
