Potato and Chicken Croquettes with Sweet Chili Cheese Dip

Potato and Chicken Croquettes with Sweet Chili Cheese Dip ~ Perfect to use up leftover mashed potatoes and chicken ~ recipes for both the #Croquettes and the #Dip #ChickenCroquettes #ChickenSnack #LeftoverPotatoes #LeftoverChicken

My family loves snacks... sweet or savory. I like to make some 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.
