In order to enjoy hosting a wonderful party, it’s only natural to depend on a few pre-made treats to make the night go smoothly. These chicken empanadas are a perfect way to keep your guests happy, and keep your time in the kitchen to a limit.
We fill our buttery puff pastry dough with a combination of white mean chicken, onions, plump raisins, jalapeno and chili peppers, whole fresh eggs, scallions and a blend of seasoning and spices. This boldly flavored appetizer is beautiful enough to be a passed on a silver tray, but simple enough to put out for snacking with close friends. Either way they are delicious enough to keep any group of diners happy. Simply thaw these little pockets in the refrigerator until tender, and bake them off in the oven until the pastry is puffed and golden brown and the filling is hot and oozing delicious juices.
Once the aroma leaks out of your kitchen and reaches your guests, they’ll be sure that they are in for a delicious south of the border treat.
