1 cup (4 oz.) cheddar or jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
4 tbsp. green onion, finely chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 (16.3 oz.) can jumbo refrigerated biscuits
1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Preheat oven to 375°F. Chop the chicken strips into 1-inch pieces.
In a bowl, combine the chopped chicken, shredded cheese, barbecue sauce, green onions and chopped jalapeño pepper.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out each biscuit into a 4½ -inch round. Brush the edges of the biscuit with the egg wash mixture. Dollop a heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture into the center of the biscuit round. Fold half of the dough over the filling, creating a half-moon shape. Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges of the biscuit. Place the empanadas on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with the remaining egg mixture.
Bake & Serve
Bake for 17 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.
