Recipe Ingredients for Crispy Chicken Tostadas

10 oz Petite Diced Tomatoes with Mild Green Chilies
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups chicken breast
8 corn tortillas
1 avocado, pitted
1/4 cup prepared salsa
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Crispy Chicken Tostadas

  1. PREPARATION

  2. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 375F.

  3. Bring tomatoes and their juice to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and most of the liquid has evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes. Add turkey (or chicken) and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, coat tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. Divide the tortillas between 2 large baking sheets. Bake, turning once, until crisped and lightly brown, about 10 minutes.

  5. Mash avocado in a bowl. Stir in salsa, sour cream and cilantro until combined.

  6. To assemble tostadas, spread each crisped tortilla with some of the avocado mixture. Top with the turkey (or chicken) mixture, lettuce and cheese.

  7. TIPS & NOTES

  8. Tip: To poach chicken breasts, place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
