Boil and mash potatoes. In a bowl, combine mashed potatoes, 2 beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons milk, chicken mince, mozzarella, spring onion, sage, salt and pepper. Stir well. Chill for 1 hour. Beat together remaining egg and milk in a small bowl. Set up another two separate bowls, one with flour, one with breadcrumbs.
Roll mixture into meal or bite-sized balls. Dip into flour, then egg mixture, then breadcrumbs. Cook in a frying pan over medium heat for 5 minutes or until golden brown. If croquettes are browning too quickly, reduce heat to allow time to cook through. Serve with your favourite sauce and green vegetables.
