BBQ Chicken Tostada

It’s no secret we love BBQ chicken in our house. We love to grill BBQ Chicken Breasts outside in the summer, or even make a delicious BBQ Chicken Pizza for Friday night movie nights. Our favorite barbeque sauce that I pick up from my local grocery store is Famous Dave’s Sweet and Zesty. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and spice, and goes great on anything. This family dinner recipe is perfect for those busy weeknights when you need something hearty and filling, but don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

BBQ Chicken Tostada Ingredients

  • Chicken: I like to shred cooked chicken breasts from my instant pot, or if your in a pinch you can shred a rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store.
  • BBQ Sauce: Use any flavor or brand of your favorite BBQ sauce. My families favorite BBQ sauce is Famous Dave’s Sweet and Zesty BBQ sauce. I can always find it in my local grocery stores.
  • Tostada Shells: Any tostada shells from your grocery store will work well. I used white corn for my recipe.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: You can substitute mozzarella cheese for Mexican blend, cheddar, or even pepper jack cheese.

How to make BBQ chicken tostadas

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place 6-8 tostada shells on prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  • Add shredded chicken and 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce to a medium size bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Evenly top tostada shells with BBQ chicken and top with shredded cheese.
  • Place in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle remaining 1/2 cup BBQ sauce over tostadas. Top with chopped cilantro if desired.

How to store leftover chicken tostadas

If you happen to have any leftover tostada ingredients left, store ingredients separately to prevent tostada shells from getting soggy when reheating.
