I love a good empanada, and since I bought a set of dough presses awhile back and haven’t used them yet. There are tasty, and can be finned with just about anything, form chicken, & beef, to peaches or apples for a sweeter taste!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Chicken breast, use whatever you feel will be the right amount for your family
Salt & Pepper
Masa (corn or flour, whatever you prefer) – I used flour
Here’s what you’ll do:
Cut up the chicken breast to very small pieces.
Season with salt and pepper, cook on med heat until fully cooked, place chicken in a bowl and buffalo sauce to coat.
I used the wind sauce that’s spicy garlic. (Left hand side)
Follow the directions on the package of the masa, if you have a dough press, roll out the masa like you are going to make tortillas, place in dough press.
Add chicken mixture. I used the second to smallest of dough presses that I have, so I only used about a tablespoon of the chicken in each one.
Press the dough press together and open up and let the empanada fall out of the press onto work surface.
I browned my empanadas first and then added oil and friend them, I let them fry for 3-4 minutes on each side. Let drain on a paper towel.
