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!

Recipe of the Day-Apple Pie

This recipe is from Allrecipes.com:

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/apple-pie-by-grandma-ople/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=apple+pie&e8=Quick+Search&event10=1&e7=Home+Page

My husband came home with two big bags of apples last week from an orchard.  We gave one bag to the neighbors and he repeatedly said I could use our bag to make apple pies.  He never says anything like!  He usually eats what I set in front of him and doesn’t specifically ask for anything in particular.  We had the next day off of school and I took my girls to an apple orchard for the afternoon.  As I watched them play I thought, “I should go home and attempt to make an apple pie from scratch…even the crust”.  The girls were done playing and I took them home and looked for a pie recipe that would be easy to follow.  This is the one I stumbled on and I have to say it was not only simple, but delicious!  I actually made 3 pies from the apples and we ate them all!  Here is the recipe:  Enjoy!  (I did use a pie crust recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook for the double crust)

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.
