Chicken Croquettes with Lemon Sauce

Tonight I had some chicken that I really needed to use up before it went bad so I threw this together.  This was my first time making anything like this and hubby and 2 of the kiddos LOVED it.  I started off with just the chicken croquettes and then decided to kick it up a level and add this wonderful sauce to the top.  Hubby rated this a 9 out of 10!

Chicken Croquettes:
3 cups cooked, finely chopped chicken meat (Give it a whirl in your food processor)                           
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic salt
2-3 eggs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper                           
                    
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Using your hands mix everything together and shape into patties.
Heat 1/2 stick of BUTTER in a large skillet over medium heat and fry patties in oil until golden brown.
 
Sauce:
1 can cream of chicken
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion powder

Combine all ingredients in a skillet and heat until warm.
When done pour over the top of your chicken croquettes.
