Chicken Croquettes

1/2 cup butter
1\2 tablespoon flour
1 1/4 cup mixed milk and chicken stock
2 cup ground cooked chicken
Freshly ground pepper
1 beaten egg
2 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
Oil for frying

Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Gradually stir in the liquid and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thick and smooth. Stir in the minced chicken and season well. Continue cooking for about 1 minute, on a low heat, until the mixture is firm enough to hold together in a mass. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly, then, with floured hands, form the mixture into little sausage shapes. Brush these with beaten egg and coat with bread crumbs. Shallow fry in hot oil until golden brown. Serve hot or cold.
