  Another school year begins again, and parents find themselves faced with two options for feeding their children: pack a lunch each day or purchase a lunch plan from the school cafeteria.

These chicken empanadas (meat-filled pastry) are “like homemade Hot Pockets–easy to eat and grab on the go,” as one of my taste-testers noted.
