Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Tempranillo, Grenache, and Albarino are great choices for Empanada. When pairing wine with Spanish dishes, why not follow the rule 'what grows together goes together'? We recommend albariño for white wine and garnachan and tempranillo for red. The Orgasmic Wine Company Oh! Orgasmic , Tempranillo with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 80 dollars per bottle.

Hints of tobacco and shows off subtle earthiness. Dark cherry on the nose invites the first taste of this popular varietal. Spice and the suggestion of leather give this a grip that leads you to appreciate the medium tannins and lingering finish.

Instructions

  1. Cook and shred chicken. You can also use leftover chicken breasts or chicken thighs. Either white or dark meat will work.
  2. Remove darkest part at the top of the leeks. Wash thoroughly to remove dirt within the leaves. Cut leeks lengthwise down the middle, then dice into quarter inch pieces. Heat truffle butter on low to medium in a saute pan and add leeks, cooking gently until warmed through and ever so crunchy when you bite them. Do not overcook.
  3. Remove from heat and fold leeks into chicken. Add the truffle oil as you go.
  4. Roll out empanada dough on floured surface. Two light turns of the dough should work. brush the upper and lower lips of the dough circle, and add 1.5 to 2 heaping tablespoons of the chicken and leek mixture.
  5. Dip your fingers in water and fold over the dough to seal. Use a fork or the back edge of a butter knife to make small slits (don't cut through the dough) on the fold all the way around.
  6. Brush beaten egg over the empanada and drizzle a few drops of truffle oil on top.
  7. Add to a 425 degree oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, depending on the oven.
  8. Remove from the oven and let sit 2-3 minutes. Drizzle with a few drops of truffle oil. The oil on the warm pastry will make your guests swoon. Serve with salad and a floral white wine.
