Do you ever buy one of those big packets of chicken because it’s on sale thinking to yourself that you will use some but put the rest in the freezer for later use? It appears that I do. While I was cleaning out the freezer the other day I found that I had quite a few of these packets. Apparently I bought one, used a few pieces of chicken out of it, put the rest in the freezer and the next time I went shopping I bought another one. It appears that this happened more than once, its a vicious cycle. With this over abundance of chicken, I decided that I should cook some, shred it and use it in a variety quick and easy dishes like chicken salads, sandwiches, tacos and these cilantro lime chicken tostadas.
Since the chicken in this dish was pre-cooked, this recipe came together really quickly, which is always a plus on busy weeknights. I simply sauteed some of the leftover shredded chicken with onions, fresh cilantro and lime juice. I placed the chicken mixture on a bed of mashed kidney beans and cheddar cheese and then topped it all with my favorite Mexican food fixin’s: shredded lettuce, avocado and tomatoes.
