Quick empanada of chicken and leeks

Published by Marta on 09/12/18

A quick empanada of chicken and leeks and, to my taste, delicious.

Quick because we do not have to make the dough because 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 refined pie, easy to make and delicious.

  • 500 g chicken breast in fillets
  • 4 leek
  • 560 g empanada dough (2 sheets of dough, purchased)
