Our twist on classic Brazilian fast food popular on the streets of São Paulo. Gently spiced chicken breast and thigh with a hint of lime provides an authentic taste of Brazil. The balance of cream cheese and sweet potato are a taste fiesta.

Poach the chicken in a pan of water very gently for 10 minutes until cooked through. Reserve the poaching liquid and add in the potatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Drain your potatoes then mash and season with Cornish Sea Salt Flakes. Meanwhile in a pan with a little oil, soften your onions on a low heat for 8-10 minutes and add in the shredded chicken, mash, egg, grated sweet potato, cream cheese and hot sauce. With damp hands form into 50g teardrop shapes and place on a tray. Coat each croquette in flour, egg and breadcrumbs then leave to chill for an hour in the fridge.

Heat vegetable oil to 170˚C then fry in batches of 4-5 until golden brown.

Remove and drain on kitchen roll and serve with chopped parsley.
