  1. Heat butter in a saucepan. Add flour and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until light golden.
  2. Stir in only a little bit of milk at a time, alternating with the chicken stock, adding more only when the previous bit has been thoroughly absorbed to make a thick sauce.
  3. Add the chicken, seasonings, Worcestershire sauce and parsley, stirring constantly.
  4. Remove from heat and cool.
  5. Shape into cylinders 11⁄4 inches thick and 31⁄2 inches long. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Combine the egg with 1 to2 tbsp water.
  7. Coat the cylinders with seasoned flour, then dip into the egg mixture, and finally coat with bread crumbs. Chill again for at least 30 minutes.
  8. Heat oil in a deep frying pan to moderate heat. Fry the croquettes, a few at a time so as not to lower the oil temperature, to a golden brown.
