To make summer chicken tostadas, you’ll need:

  • 2 teaspoons of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 12 ounces of chicken breast tenders
  • 1 cup of chopped red onion
  • 1 cup of fresh corn kernels
  • 1 cup of chopped zucchini
  • ½ cup of salsa verde
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 fat-free flour tortillas
  • 3 ounces of shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Preheat the broiler, and combine the canola oil, cumin and salt, while stirring well. Heat the oil spice mixture in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and sprinkle it evenly over the chicken. Add the chicken to the pan, and sauté it for 3 minutes before you add in the onion, corn, and zucchini to the pan.

Sauté everything for 2 minutes or until the chicken is done. Stir in the salsa and 2 tablespoons of cilantro, and cook everything for 2 more minutes (or until the liquid almost evaporates), while stirring frequently. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet, and lightly coat them with cooking spray. Broil the tortillas for 3 minutes or until they have slightly browned.

Spoon about ¾ cup of chicken mixture in the center of each tortilla and sprinkle each serving with ¼ cup of cheese. Broil the packed tortillas for 2 more minutes (or until the cheese melts).

Repeat the procedure with the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle each serving with ¾ teaspoons of the remaining cilantro, and serve the tostadas immediately while they are still warm.
