Brazilian Chicken Croquettes (Coxinha)

Brazilian Chicken Croquettes (Coxinha)

Serves 9 – 12


1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
2 cups cooked shredded chicken
½ teaspoon paprika
Salt to taste
4 ounces cream cheese
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups whole milk
¼ cup chicken broth
2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups panko bread crumbs
Oil for frying

1. In a medium pot, heat olive oil, then sauté garlic and onions until soft and brown. Add shredded chicken, salt, and paprika. Stir to incorporate.

2. Transfer mixture into a bowl, add cream cheese and parsley. Mix well.

3. In the same pot, add butter, chicken broth, and milk. Bring to a boil. Stir in flour until dough is formed.

4. Transfer dough to a flat surface. Knead the dough while it is warm, but not hot.

5. Pinch a piece of dough, about the size of a large egg, and roll into a ball. Using your hands, flatten the dough and spoon filling into the center. Wrap the dough into a pear shape and make sure there aren’t any holes.

6. While heating a pot of oil to 350˚F/180˚C, dredge the dough in egg and panko, then deep-fry till golden brown and cooked through. Drain on a towel and serve immediately.

7. Enjoy!

  1. OMG, the person didn't bite the top of the coxinha, that is so not good for my perfectionism

  2. Looks like fried strawberry, I know what my next prank is going to be…. 😏

    instead of butter to make the dough i use Crisco… it makes it less sticky when you are trying to make the shape ….

    A massa ficou crua tanto que forma um vácuo entre a casca frita e a massa
    Nem sequer tiveram o trabalho de esperar a massa cozinhar.

    its not Coxinha, coxinha dont use Milk.

    This doug is obviously heavier than original doug.

    And We use Creamy Cheese (requeijão), not Cream Cheese.

    This is the white version of coxinha. If your really want to experience the real taste, you gotta go to Brazil. These mfs are just ruining this delicious thing.
