  • 4Servings


  • 4 tbsp. EVOO
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/4 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 1/4 lbs. thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 8 tostada shells
  • 1 avocado—pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 6 oz. crumbled feta
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa, drained


1. Brush a grill or grill pan with 1 tbsp. oil and heat over medium-high. In a large bowl, whisk the scallions, lime juice and the remaining 3 tbsp. oil; season the dressing with salt and pepper. 

2. In a small bowl, mix the chili powder with 3/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Season the chicken with the spice mixture. Grill, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Let rest 5 minutes, then slice. 

3. Toss the cabbage, radishes and 1/3 cup cilantro with the dressing; season.

4. Divide 4 tostada shells among 4 plates; top with half the cabbage salad, chicken, avocado, feta and salsa. Repeat layering with the remaining ingredients. Top with the remaining cilantro.
