Croquettes:
The day before you wish to make croquettes, simmer the chicken until tender in water with bay leaf, lemon, and salt. Remove meat from bones and chop rather finely. Reserve the chicken stock. In saucepan, melt butter and blend in the flour. Gradually add cream, salt and pepper. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add chopped pecans, mushrooms and half the can of soup. Chill overnight in a covered container.

To finish croquettes, beat eggs in a small bowl. Mound crumbs on waxed paper. With a knife, cut across chilled chicken mixture to divide it into 12 portions. Pick up each portion with a spoon, and shape by hand into logs about 3-inches long by 1-1/2-inches wide. Coat with crumbs, dip into egg, then roll in crumbs again. Chill well before frying. Heat oil, enough to cover, to 375. Fry croquettes, turning once, until nicely browned. Serve with Mushroom Sauce.

Mushroom Sauce:
Combine butter and flour in small, heavy saucepan. Gradually add chicken broth, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat, until thickened. Add reserved 1/2 can soup, and stir well to blend.
