Healthy Chicken Tostada
These chicken tostadas feature boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a bold and flavorful way: marinated and served alongside grilled, tangy tomatillos. Instead of frying tortillas for the base, the chefs at Food Network Kitchens charred them on the grill for a slightly crisp texture and smoky flavor.

Marinating chicken and peppers and onions in a highly flavored marinade and then grilling gives it all the flavor without fat. A spiced creamy yogurt sauce and avocado sauce wrapped in a corn tortilla with fresh cilantro keep the fajitas healthy and fresh tasting.
