Coxinhas (Brazilian Chicken Croquettes Made in Japan) - Video Recipe

Coxinha is a very popular street food snack in Brazil :)

Note: Don't blame me, I tried to make it with the ingredients available in Japan.

Coxinhas (Brazilian Chicken Croquettes)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 10 pieces

400g (14oz.) potatoes
150ml milk
2 tbsp. butter
1 consomme cube or powder
150g (5.3oz.) bread flour
350g (12.5oz) chicken breast
1 chopped onion
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. salt
bread flour
beaten egg
fine bread crumbs
vegetable oil for deep frying

1. Peel and cut potatoes into medium chunks and place them in a pot with chicken breast. Add water until cover, then boil them until soft for about 20 minutes. Drain and mash the potatoes (in a pot) while hot. Add milk, butter, and consomme, then mix well. Shred the chicken with your fingers.
2. Heat cooking oil in a pot, add chopped onion, then cook until tender. Add the shredded chicken and finely chopped fresh parsley, then season with salt and pepper.
3. Put the pot with the potato mixture on low heat, add bread flour, then knead until combined. Leave to cool until you can handle it, then divide it into 10 portions.
4. Grease your hands with cooking oil, flatten the dough, place the filling in the center, then wrap the dough into a pear shape.
5. Coat with bread flour, beaten egg, then bread crumbs.
6. Deep fry in oil at 170C (338F) for about 6 minutes until golden.
