However, the vessel was terrible!!! I used the premade refrigerated pie crust and cut the 3 inch circles to fill with the chicken mixture. I could not get the empanadas to fold nicely at all. I even tried making squares. It was not good. Here is a picture of the finished product.
The next day (I had some filling left over), I tried making the empanadas with gyoza wrappers. The gyoza wrappers were much easier to fill and fold. I baked them in the oven but they did not look too pretty. I'm going to have to try to pan-fry them or broil them next time.
Did I enjoy it? I really like the filling. The pie crust vessel, not so much. The gyoza wrapper was better but I have to find a better way to cook it.
Would I recommend it? I would because the filling was so good. But I warn you, the 3 inch pie crust round is too small. I would make it bigger.
Will I make it again? I will. I'll let you know if I come up with an easier way to wrap them up.
If you make it, or if you have had it, let me know what you think!
