Expert Tips

Remember that you can reheat them in the oven at 325F for 10-15 minutes.

Empanadas are the perfect food for busy families with different tastes. This version is stuffed with chicken, onions and peppers, Argentine style. Since my daughters don’t eat onions, I make theirs with only chicken and cheese; just remember to close them differently to distinguish them later. Empanadas are also really easy to reheat in the oven. Within 10-15 minutes they are ready to be enjoyed at your dinner table.

Close the empanadas upwards in case they open, it will prevent a mess in your oven.

You can freeze them once they are baked and reheated in the oven.

Directions

  • 1 Chop the onion into small cubes. In a medium skillet heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high, add the chopped onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until golden.
  • 2 Chop the peppers into small cubes and add to the skillet, cook the onions and peppers together for 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  • 3 Using your hands, shred the chicken into small pieces. Mix with the cooked onions and peppers and add the flour and cheese. Mix well.
  • 4 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 5 Flour the counter and opened the cans. Separate the biscuits, you will have 10. On the floured counter extend each biscuit using a kitchen mallet. Give it the shape of a circle and fill with 2 tablespoons chicken mixture. Close by pinching the dough upwards.
  • 6 Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes until golden-brown.
  • 7 Serve immediately.
