A quick chicken and leek empanada and, for my taste, delicious.
Quick because you don't have to make the dough since the one we are going to use is bought.
And delicious because the mixture of leeks and chicken is spectacular. Do not put anything else, you do not need it!
It is a very fine pie, easy to make and delicious.
