Step 4:

Mash the boiled potatoes in a big bowl.

Step 5:

Transfer the egg yolks to the bowl of potatoes and keep egg whites aside for later. Next, add the butter, lemon juice, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, and chopped cilantro. Mix until well combined.

Step 6:

Add the cooled chicken to the potato mixture in two batches, mixing well between each addition.

Step 7:

Grease the baking dish with oil. Using a trigger-release ice cream scoop, portion out the mix in equal sizes. Rub some oil on the palms of your hands and shape the croquettes. Place in the greased baking dish. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Cover it with plastic wrap and freeze for an hour.

Step 8:

Put a pot filled halfway with vegetable oil on the stove over medium heat, then remove the croquettes from the freezer.

Step 9:

Beat the egg whites, then in two different bowls, add all-purpose flour and breadcrumbs. Roll the croquette into the flour, shape it once again, then dip it in the egg white and cover it with breadcrumbs. Place in a baking dish and repeat with the remaining croquettes.

Step 10:

Once the oil is hot, gently add coated croquettes and fry until golden brown on all sides. Remove from heat ad place in a strainer to remove excess oil and allow it to cool.

Step 11:

Place the croquettes in a serving tray and top with a dollop of tomato ketchup and a blistered cherry tomato. Insert a bamboo cocktail skewer to keep it all in place, then add cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
