Grilled Chicken Tostadas
From Cooking Light magazine

4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon 40% less-sodium taco seasoning (such as Old El Paso)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Cooking spray
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
6 cups packaged coleslaw
1 (7-ounce) can green salsa
4 cups chopped tomato
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, chopped
1 1/4 cups fat-free refried beans
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup unsalted pumpkin seed kernels, toasted (optional)

  1. Prepare grill, or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush chicken with juice; sprinkle with seasoning and sugar.
  3. Place chicken on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Cool slightly
  4. Cut chicken into 1/4-inch strips; set aside. Place tortillas on grill rack or grill pan coated with cooking spray; grill 30 seconds on each side or until golden brown.
  5. Combine coleslaw and salsa; toss to coat. Combine tomato and olives; toss gently.
  6. Spread about 3 tablespoons beans over each tortilla; divide chicken evenly among tortillas. Top each serving with about 2/3 cup slaw mixture, 2/3 cup tomato mixture, 4 teaspoons cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and 2 teaspoons cilantro. Sprinkle each serving with 2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds, if desired.

Serves 6.

Sounds great!! That's my husband's fave Mexican dish, tostadas. He usually gets beef and cheese, so I'm going to use this as a spin. Thanks!

I like the tostada idea, but I might change up the ingredients a little bit. But I'm keeping the feta!!!
