Chicken Mini Empanadas

Yield:
36 empanadas
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 2 11 -ounce packages pie dough mix
  • 1 9 .75-ounce can white chicken meat, drained, or 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 3 -ounce can sliced ripe olives
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
Directions

Prepare the pie dough according to the package directions for a double-crust pie. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken, salsa and olives. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Cool slightly.

On a flour-dusted surface, roll out the dough to inch thick. Using a 3-inch-round cutter, cut out 36 circles, rerolling the scraps as needed. Place about 1 tablespoon chicken mixture in the center of each circle. Moisten the edges with water.

Fold the circles in half and pinch to seal. Pierce the tops with a fork.

Place the empanadas on a baking sheet and bake 15 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot.
