    OMG! My Step-Grandmother was from Santiago, Chile and made empanadas from scratch. I never got the recipe from her. (When you're a kid, you tend to take things for granted.) I have since searched for various empanada recipes and THIS one sounds great! As you know...I LOVE chicken! Yippee! Good post my friend.
