Ingredients

  • 1 (15-oz.) package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1 cup deli chicken salad
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces, toasted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Preparation

  1. Working with 1 crust at a time, unroll piecrust according to package directions onto a lightly floured surface. Cut each piecrust into 4 (4 1/2") circles.
  2. Combine chicken salad, cranberries, and pecans in a bowl. Spoon about 2 Tbsp. chicken salad mixture in center of each circle. Brush edges of circles with beaten egg. Fold dough over filling for each empanada, pressing edges with a fork to seal. Place empanadas onto a lightly greased baking sheet, and brush with beaten egg. Repeat procedure with remaining piecrust circles, chicken salad mixture, and beaten egg.
