Chicken-broccoli Croquettes

I loved these chicken-broccoli croquettesOpens in a new tab.. I made them for a party, and they were a big hit. They are quick, easy, and delicious—so many different recipes. I think you should make them all! Just about anything works as a dipping sauce. I decided on fresh pesto as my dipping sauce because I had some on hand from another recipe.
