Spring Chicken & Chilli Croquettes

Prep time: 5 mins - Cook time: 40 mins - Serves 4

 These sweet potato croquettes are packed with delicious flavour and have a bit of a kick! If spice isn’t for you, simply reduce or remove the chili. Serve up with a colourful, crunchy salad and a splodge of mayonnaise. If you’re having a get together, these are a winner on the buffet table and can be made in advance.


  • 2 Packs Heck! Spring Chicken Chipolatas
  • 1kg Sweet Potato
  • 100g Spring Onions - chopped
  • 1 Red & Green chilli - finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Garlic Paste
  • 60g Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 10g Parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and put a large pan of water on the boil
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes, chop into rough chunks and pop them into the boiling water, leaving to simmer for about 15-20 minutes. (You will know when they are done if you can poke a blunt knife into the potato)
  3. Put the spring onion & chilli in a medium/large mixing bowl. De-skin the sausages, add the chicken meat and mix together with either your hands or a large spoon.
  4. Remove the sweet potato from the heat, drain the water and then mash.
  5. Add the mashed potato to the chicken mix & combine with a large spoon.
  6. Using your spoon, fill a piping bag with the mixture. Snip the narrow end of the bag to the desired size of the croquettes and on a baking tray, squeeze out the mix into long strips and cut to portion size (approx. 6cm long)
  7. Mix the bread crumbs, parsley, salt & pepper in a bowl
  8. Roll each croquettes in the bowl of crumbs, transfer onto a baking tray and pop in the oven for 20 mins until the croquettes start to look golden brown
  9. Serve with a large colourful salad and your favourite sauce (we recommend mayonnaise)
