Receta Chicken Empanadas
Receta Chicken Empanadas  Puerto Rico

    The Filling:
1 package Fresh Ground Chicken
2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons toasted chopped almonds
2 tablespoons raisins
10 olives stuffed with pimientos, sliced

The Dough:
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup dry white wine or water
Pastry blender
All purpose flour
Rolling pin
Oil for frying


Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Cook and stir ground chicken with onion, pepper and garlic, stirring constantly to break up large pieces of chicken and to prevent sticking, 4 to 5 minutes.

Stir in tomato sauce, salt, oregano and pepper. Reduce heat. Simmer 5 to 6 minutes or until ground chicken is no longer pink. Stir in almonds, raisins and olives. Cool. Reserve.

Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until it resembles small crumbs.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and place eggs and wine in the center. Stir in a circular motion, starting from the inside and working your way outwardly until flour is moistened and mixture is well blended. Divide dough into 20 (1-1/2 to 2-inch) balls, cover dough while you are making the empanadas. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 4 to 4-1/2-inch circle, using a rolling pin. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the filling on the bottom 1/3 of the dough. Moisten edge of dough with water and fold dough over. Press edges with fork to seal empanadas. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

To fry Empanadas:
Heat 2-inches of oil, in heavy skillet, over high heat. Place empanadas a few at a time, turning halfway through, to brown evenly, about 4 to 5 minutes. You can also use a deep fat fryer set at 375F., if desired.

For Quicker Empanadas Omit making the dough and use 2 packages of frozen empanada discs available in the freezer section in some Supermarkets or in Latino Markets.
