Costa Ricans make exceptional empanadas, a dish introduced to them by the Spanish. This version is a savory baked chicken and cheese empanada and is a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken. For best results, do not overfill the empanadas or the dough may tear. If you enjoy empanadas and make them often, an empanada mold is a worthwhile gadget that turns them out quickly and easily.
