Empanadas are a delicious Mexican fried piece of heaven in a bite. This Keto Chicken Empanadas uses a delicious fathead dough to wrap juicy shredded chicken.

 1 ½ cups Mozzarella
 3 oz Cream Cheese
 1 ¼ cups Almond Flour
 1 Large Eggwhisked
 2 cups Cooked Shredded Chicken
 3 tbsp Butter
  cup Hot Sauce
 Condiments for Dipping
1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2

Add mozzarella and cream cheese to a bowl. Put in the microwave for one minute, take out and stir. Put in the microwave for another minute, stir well. Add in almond flour and egg. Mix to combine well.

3

The dough will be a little wet but if it is too wet that you can't get it to stop sticking to your fingers, then add a little more almond flour. Roll the dough flat with a rolling pin or with a piece of plastic wrap on top and use a wine bottle.

4

Once you've rolled it flat, about ΒΌ" thick, use a bowl to cut circle shapes. For excess dough, form into a ball then roll out again and repeat the process until all the dough has been used. Lay on a lightly greased cooking sheet or use a silicone baking mat.

5

Once you've made all the empanadas, cook at 425 degrees for 12 Minutes until starting to turn golden brown.
