Quick and Easy Chicken Tostadas

Here’s a tip: Keep poached, baked or grilled chicken breast in the fridge for salads, soups, sandwiches etc.
When summer days and nights are too hot to fire up the stove this easy and zesty dish takes just a few minutes to prepare if you already have your chicken at hand. You can also easily omit the chicken since the recipe has complete protein without it. This is gluten-free and if you are lactose intolerant use soy based cheddar cheese.

  1. Yes way Boomertoo! It is a great balance of proteins, carbohydrate, fiber, fruit and veg all in a quick and tasty package. (Tomatoes are a fruit). Just remember cheese should be a garnish and not your main protein source to keep it healthy.
