LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F.
  • 2 To make arepas: In large bowl, stir corn flour, water and salt with spoon; let rest 1 minute or until mixture thickens. Stir in mozzarella cheese. Form 4 balls of dough, using about 1/2 cup dough each. Place each ball on plastic wrap; shape each into 3 1/2-inch circle, 3/4 inch thick.
  • 3 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook arepas in oil about 4 minutes on each side, until dark spots appear on both sides. Place arepas on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake about 20 minutes or until fully cooked and hollow sounding when tapped. Cool about 20 minutes.
  • 5 Meanwhile, make chicken filling. In medium bowl, mix all filling ingredients until well blended. To serve, slice each arepa vertically but not all the way through. Fill each with about 1/2 cup filling.
