can (16.3 ounces) jumbo homestyle refrigerated biscuits
beaten egg yolk mixed with 1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 375°F. Chop chicken into 1-inch pieces and combine with barbecue sauce, onion, cheese and jalapeno pepper.
Roll biscuits out on lightly floured surface, to discs about 4 1/2 inches in diameter. Brush outer edges of the disc with egg mixture. Place about 1 heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture in center of each disc. Fold half the dough over the filling and press the edges with a fork to crimp. Place empanadas on ungreased cookie sheet and brush tops with remaining egg yolk.
Bake at 375°F for 17 to 20 minutes or until golden brown top.

These are great!! After working all day, I hated coming home and having to cook dinner. Then I discovered Shortcuts! The first time I made this, I had my husband eating out of my hand. Great taste and prep time is minutes!! Would recommend to all who don't like long prep time but wants something good to eat.

Empanadas! WOW, I am not one for trying new things. And I try alot to get out of cooking dinners. My cooking is so the same old. As soon as I received this e-mail recipe I took one look at the picture and WOW my family enjoyed it all. Let's just say more of these easy, not to much time consuming healthy meal recipes. I might actually end up loving to cook. Great recipe! Thank You.
