Ingredients

  • 1 can chicken (Swanson® Premium, 12.5 oz can)
  • 1/2 jar Prego Italian Sauce
  • 1 pastry (pack of frozen discs, dough, discs found in the Hispanic frozen food section, thawed)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (or sliced, I used mild cheddar)
  • 2 1/2 cups oil (for frying)

Directions

  1. 1. Drain water from Swanson® Premium Chicken.
  2. 2. Place Swanson® Premium Chicken in a small pot to heat and beginning breaking the chicken apart to shred. Next, add Prego® Italian Sauce.
  3. 3. Mix the chicken and sauce well until chicken is completely covered. At this point, you can add more sauce if you want it extra saucy. Once the mixture is heated through, typically about 10 mins or less over medium heat.
  4. 4. Once the discs have been thawed place a spoonful of cheese (if you prefer to add cheese) on top of the dough then a spoonful of shredded chicken mixture. Close the empanada using a fork or the dough press. Repeat until all empanadas are made.
  5. 5. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Once hot, place a couple empanadas in the hot oil. Flip once dough gets a golden color. Place empanada on a paper towel to drain the oil.
