Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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 piecrust 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. Bake until golden, 15 to 18 minutes.
