Orange Chicken and Fried Rice Empanadas


  • Author: Heather l The Super Mom Life

Description

These orange chicken and fried rice empanadas are made with egg roll wraps instead of traditional empanada dough. They’re so delicious!


Ingredients

  • Frozen orange chicken
  • Frozen fried rice
  • Egg roll wraps
  • Vegetable Oil

Instructions

  • Cook chicken and rice according to packages. Make sure to set aside half of the sauce from the chicken.
  • Chop chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  • Place one egg roll wrap on an empanada press.
  • Place 3-4 pieces of chopped chicken and a tablespoon of rice into the center of the egg roll wrap center.
  • Drizzle a bit of sauce onto the chicken and rice.
  • Brush sauce along the edges of the egg roll wrap, where the empanada press will seal the edges.
  • Close the empanada press tightly.
  • Remove excess dough, open the press and remove the empanada.
  • Repeat with the remaining ingredients until a plate full of empanadas is ready to be fried.
  • Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil on medium-high heat.
  • Once your oil is hot, fry each empanada for 1-2 minutes per side (or until each side is golden brown). You may be able to fit a few in the pan at once, depending on the size of the pan.
  • Once golden brown on both sides, remove them and place them on a paper-towel-lined plate to allow the oil to drain a bit.
  • Serve with the remaining orange sauce as a dipping sauce.
