‘Tis the season for citrus!
Right now, citrus fruits are in season, so it’s the perfect time to marry them with other flavors for dinner. Since orange is my favorite, I decided to put an orange spin on a chicken tostada…so good, so easy and so eaten up by my family. You could also use corn, flour, or crunchy taco shells instead of a tostada…whichever you have on hand.
This recipe serves four adults.
1 pound of cooked and shredded chicken (click here to see how I get mine)
1 cup fresh orange juice (about 2 juicy oranges)
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
about 8 green onions, chopped
4 to 6 tostada shells
Orange slices to garnish
In a small bowl, combine your orange juice and BBQ sauce until combined. Pour this sauce over your cooked and shredded chicken. Scoop out a generous portion of chicken on to each tostada shell and sprinkle a few green onions on top. Garnish with an orange wedge or two.
I mean…how easy is that?!?! This is the perfect weeknight meal! If you’re feeling extra fancy, you could add a little shredded Pepper Jack cheese on top too.
A fast weeknight supper…with a citrus twist.
