My family loves snacks, both sweet and savory. I like to make snack platters now and then to surprise them with as a kind of Saturday afternoon/early dinner or if there is a lot of sport watching on the television for the day.

I also used to make (smaller) platters for them as an after school lunch treat, but would then only have used healthy snacks i.e. fresh fruit skewers, these Potato and Chicken Croquettes with Sweet Chili Cheese Sauce and maybe some fish sticks.

Cooked potatoes keep well in a sealed container in the refrigerator and I usually make some extra than I need a couple of days before I plan on making these Croquettes. I still dry-cook the potatoes as much as I can (see **Note below), but chilling the cooked potatoes does help a lot already.

You can add more Chicken if you prefer, but not too much or the mashed Potatoes would not hold firm and it will be a lot harder to deep-fry the Croquettes.

**Note : Cook your potatoes as usual for mashed potatoes – add only 2 TB Butter and 2 TB Milk – mash and season to taste – return to stove plate – dry-cook the mashed potatoes as much as possible, stirring all the time – let cool completely and chill for 2 – 3 hours before use.
