Chicken Tostada

Soft onions, tender chicken, and just a little cheese over corn tortillas make a perfect quick, light meal. Plan this recipe for the night after you’ve made a chicken dish for easy use of leftover chicken.


  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 4 Tbsp. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 4 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 4 Tbsp. fat-free sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bake tortillas until golden brown and crisp (10-12 minutes). Top with cheese and bake until melted (1 minute).
  2. While tortillas are baking, spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Sauté onion with the seasoning until soft and brown (4-5 minutes). Stir in the chicken and heat through.
  3. To serve, top a corn tortilla with chicken, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream.
