These delicious and easy chicken Parmesan empanadas are stuffed with traditional tomato sauce, chicken, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. A fun and kid-friendly recipe perfect for Back-to-School.
It feels like summer just started, but the truth of the matter is that Back-to-School is right around the corner. Therefore, it is about that time we begin collecting some quick and simple recipes to feed our hungry kids once school starts. It is with this purpose that I want to share with you these delicious and super easy chicken Parmesan empanadas I made with a few simple ingredients I picked up at Walmart.
I really love when I can go to a store and find all the ingredients needed for a particular recipe and more with only one visit. This helps me save time during the busy back-to-school season and helps me get home fast to cook a quick meal for the family. This is what I get when I go to Walmart.
Plus, I can get delicious ingredients that allow me to get creative and still be able to whip up a nice meal in about 15 minutes.
These chicken Parmesan empanadas were made with only 5 ingredients: empanada dough discs, Prego® Italian Sauce, rotisserie chicken, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese. That’s it!
They are unbelievably delicious and so much fun to make. Make them with your kids. They would love to get their hands dirty helping build these little pockets of goodness.
I know my kids love doing it and getting to eat them afterward is like it’s own little reward.
As I mentioned before, I made one of my regular quick stops at Walmart and purchased the whole rotisserie chicken as well as some of my favorite Campbell Soup Company products including Campbell’s® SpaghettiOs® pasta, V8 Splash® and a jar of Prego® Italian Sauce, which I used to make this recipe.
My kids always ask that I get them Campbell’s® SpaghettiOs® pasta. I do because I like that it lets parents be a kid, with their kid. It is really a fun food to keep around for family dinners!
I love Prego® Italian Sauce because it is made with real ingredients you can see, taste and smell. Plus, it is simple and easy to use for any home cook and has a real homemade taste. With ingredients like this, it is really easy to cut corners when cooking.
Pair your dinner with V8 Splash® and you’ll be all set! It has a lineup of indulgent flavor blends that pull you away from the mundane day-to-day and whisk you away to a happier place. Is there anything better than that?
Go ahead. Give these chicken Parmesan empanadas a try. You can thank me later. 😉

Lay the empanada discs, a few at a time, on a flat surface over parchment paper.

Carefully fold the discs and using a fork press firmly around the edges to seal.
