In bowl, shred chicken with fork and mix in pepper, cheddar, and cream cheese. Mix well.
If using crescents, unroll and seal together and. Flatten with a rolling pin.
Using about a 3 1/2 inch circle cutter, cut out circles from the dough. Reroll and recut until all the dough has been used.
If using biscuits, just flatten.
Place about 1 tbsp of chicken mixture into center of each circle. Fold into a half moon shape and seal edges by pressing down all the way around with a fork. Apply a thin layer of butter or spray with butter flavored cooking spray on top of each empanada.
Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes until golden.
You may need to turn baking sheet halfway around halfway through baking time so all empanadas golden evenly.
