Easy Chicken Sausage Empanadas!

Hey All!

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and I don’t know about you, but it takes me about two days to get everything cooked up and ready for the big day. I spend hours in the kitchen cooking for the holidays and in between I sometimes forget that I have to eat something in between all the cooking. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to partner with the amazing folks at al fresco all natural to create an easy meal I can eat in between all the holiday prep and while I’m on the move as I get ready for the big holidays to come. Check out these super easy chicken sausage empanadas! They are the perfect on-the-go recipe to make during this busy holiday season.

You can easily make these in under 30 minutes and be back to the holiday prep in no time. In case you’ve never heard of al fresco Chicken Sausage, they are the #1 chicken sausage brand in the U.S., with over 40 flavorful and gourmet varieties of chicken products, each with 70% less fat than pork sausage.

I love their Sweet Italian Style with red and green peppers flavor of chicken sausage. It’s made with made with lean, skinless chicken meat, has no artificial ingredients, is gluten free and comes fully cooked. These awesome sausages are ready in minutes! That means you can create a variety of quick and easy meals with them.

They are the perfect main ingredient for our easy chicken sausage empanadas. Here is how to make them!

First you slice up your sausages into round slices.

You then slice up the olives and remove the pits from the olives.

Next you dice up your red pepper…

And your onion.

Over a low heat, place all your ingredients into a frying pan and stir until the peppers and onions are partially cooked and the sausage is slightly brown.

Let it simmer and move on to cutting your puff pastry sheet dough into squares. Place a spoonful of the sausage ingredients in the middle of the dough and fold it over to create an empanada.

Close up the edges of the dough by pressing a fork along the edges.

Beat an egg in a bowl and brush the egg over the dough. You repeat this process until you make as many empanadas as you like. Place them in the over at 350 degrees for 25 minutes until the dough has risen and is golden.

The dough should be flaky and light when it’s done. Put on a plate to cool and enjoy!

That’s all you have to do to make these super tasty chicken sausage empanadas.

I can munch on about 10 of these by myself. They are so easy to grab and eat in between all the holiday prep.

I can prep my turkey and munch on one of these babies at the same time.

I can also make a bunch of these and store them. I can easily heat them up each day I’m getting ready for Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t love a grab and go meal? I know I do!

I’m so thankful to have these amazing al fresco all natural chicken sausages in my fridge to enjoy during this busy holiday season.
