Shredded Chicken Empanadas with Chipotle Aioli

By April 29, 2015No Comments

You gotta love those last minute homework projects that our children spring on us at the last minute. “Oh, by the way Mom, I have to make a Spanish dish and bring samples of it to my class tomorrow”. Oh really?!? Well, good thing my daughter knows how to cook because I sent her to the kitchen with a recipe and let her work some magic. It worked out that I hadn’t planned anything for dinner so we got to enjoy her Empanada’s for dinner that night. Empanada dough is a basic pie crust recipe that has baking powder in it. It’s a little denser of a dough but is easy to work with and fun to fill with any of your favorite fillings. I happened to have some shredded chicken from a previous crock pot meal and so we just seasoned the chicken with some spices and threw that in the dough. You know me and my love for sauce, so I had to add the Chipotle Aioli for dipping. The two combined together were a really fun, and surprisingly easy, meal for a busy weeknight. The kids loved dipping these and thought they were fun little hot pockets. Phew! Another home work assignment behind us. Who is excited for summer? I sure am! 🙂
