Now it is time for a party! My middle son got married to a most wonderful girl and we are welcoming them home from their honeymoon with a small family get-together. As a family favorite, my empanadas will be the principal side dish, along with various and sundry goodies. Everything is ready, I have everything prepared, including the masa. But, alas, in my excitement, I did not realize that I had run out of ground beef! With no time to spare, it is time to improvise. "I'll make chicken empanadas!" I thought. With no previous experience in the matter, I just grabbed 6 chicken thighs, cooked them and pulled the meat apart. So, below you will find my improvisation which, if I say so humbly, turned out as good or better than my beef empanadas. I love when an "experiment" is a success!
