Kids’ Chicken Empanadas with Magic Sauce + Snack Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Sauce

Kids’ Chicken Empanadas with Magic Sauce + Snack Pretzel Bites with Cheddar Sauce

Empanadas (meat pies) are perfectly portable for lunchboxes, and great fuel for zooming out into the backyard. These heat-and-eat hand pies are filled with gently seasoned chicken and vegetables, and baked to golden perfection. You’ll just whip up a ketchup and mayo “magic sauce” for dipping, and serve with sliced apple, grapes, and grape tomatoes. But just you wait, it’ll be snacktime in no time—so we’ve included kid-pleasing chewy-soft pretzel bites with our chefs’ shortcut to a velvety cheese sauce for dipping. Yup, we’re thinking outside the lunchbox! This recipe is designed to provide lunch and snack components for multiple days.
