Instructions

Prep dough
1
  • Sprinkle both sides of dough with flour. With floured hands, divide dough into 2 equal pieces (4 pieces for 4 ppl) on a well-floured surface.
  • Stretch each piece of dough into a 5x8-inch round or oval shape.
  • Set aside to rest on a parchment-lined baking sheet, 8-10 min. (NOTE: Use 2 baking sheets for 4 ppl).
Cook filling
2
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chicken and Mexican Seasoning. 
  • Cook, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through 4-6 min.** 
  • Add tomato sauce base and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) water. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Set aside to cool slightly, 5 min. 
Fill empanadas
3
  • With floured hands, stretch dough again into large oval shapes. (NOTE: The dough should now hold its shape.)
  • Using a slotted spoon, top one half of each empanada with chicken mixture. 
  • Fold over dough over filling, then crimp edges to seal. Brush 1/2 tbsp oil over each empanada, then make one small slit on the top of each empanada using a knife.
Bake empanadas
4
  • Bake empanadas in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 22-25 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, bake in the middle and top of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through.) 
Make corn salsa
5
  • Meanwhile, zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges.
  • Core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch pieces. 
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then corn and peppers. 
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5-6 min. 
  • Add lime juice and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) lime zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 
Finish and serve
6
  • Allow empanadas to cool slightly before serving, 3-4 min.
  • Divide empanadas between plates and cut in half, if desired.
  • Serve corn salsa alongside.
  • Squeeze a lime wedge over top of the empanadas, if desired.
