Chicken Empanadas

I just realized that I use chicken a lot in my recipes! We all like chicken so it’s not a problem. I like to take my leftover roasted chicken and make something yummy with it the next day. I have also used this recipe with leftover roast beef and used my leftover broth from it and it’s also delicious! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 yellow onion, diced
1 tbsp flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
10 oz peas and carrots, frozen
1 cup chicken pieces, leftover shredded-can use more
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
2 refrigerated pie crust, 9 inch (I haven’t used my crust for this yet)

Directions

Heat oven to 400° F. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes.

Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Slowly stir in the broth. Cook until thickened, about 3 minutes. Add the peas and carrots, chicken, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Cut each pie-crust in half. Spoon the chicken mixture over one side of each half-circle, leaving a ½-inch border. Using your fingers, wet the border with water. Fold the crust over the chicken. Press to seal. Make three 1-inch slits in the top of each.

Transfer the empanadas to a baking sheet. I have found it easier to make it on the baking sheet. I make mine too big to transfer!!

Bake until golden, 15 to 18 minutes.

Take out and enjoy!  Have a great day!
