Lime Chicken Tostadas

This one will add some kick to your chicken!  The recipe below is for tostadas, but we made tacos instead.  I have noted those changes in red.

Lime Chicken Tostadas
½ C lime juice
¼ C soy sauce
¼ C vegetable oil
1 TB honey
2 tsp minced garlic
1 ½ tsp chili powder (optional)
1 lb boneless chicken breasts or tenders (I used pre-cut chicken strips)
Corn tortillas (Taco shells)
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese (Cheddar Cheese)
Shredded lettuce
Refried Beans

Mix first 6 ingredients to make a marinade. Add chicken, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours (best if over night). Cook or grill chicken. Cut into strips.

For tostadas, brush each side of the tortilla with oil and place on grill or pan and brown each side. Sprinkle tortilla with cheese, lettuce and chicken.
For tacos, spread beans inside the taco shell,add chicken and then favorite toppings after that.

**Optional toppings: Salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro and green onions.
