Easy Chicken Tostados-A Healthy Weeknight Meal!

These chicken tostados are a great alternative to tacos or nachos. They are also great to use for leftover chicken. Feel free to change ingredients to make your own variations!


  • 1 pound chicken breast, raw

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • Juice from 1 lime

  • 3 roma tomatoes, diced

  • 1 avocado, diced

  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Combine olive oil, cumin, chili powder and onion powder in small mixing bowl. Squeeze in the juice from 1 lime.

  2. Add chicken breasts to the olive oil mixture. Cover completely. Let set for 20 minutes.

  3. Place chicken in sauce pan over medium heat. (I used a grill pan to create grill lines). Flip periodically. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear (Chicken should reach 165 degrees with a thermometer).

  4. Remove from stove. Cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside.

  5. Arrange corn tortillas on a sheet so that they do not overlap.

  6. Bake in oven for 3-4 or until crispy (Watch carefully as they burn easily).

  7. Assemble tostada by adding chicken, diced tomato, avocado and cheese to each tortilla.

  8. Enjoy!
