Everyone I serve this to has raved about the flavors. It is not too spicy, but very flavorful for those with a discerning palate. If you like lemon in your chicken, try this! Very figure friendly with fat free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

How To Make mexican chicken lasagna

  • 1
    Cut chicken into strips, sprinkle with Spike (look for in the health food stores, a blend of 39 herbs & spices) and lemon juice & bake for 45 min. at 350 degrees. Cool & chop up. (Can be done the day before)
  • 2
    In a 13 x 9” pan, pour 1 cup of salsa over bottom, then layer 4 tostada shells (breaking to cover & not overlap) spread on 1 cup of sour cream & sprinkle half of: the olives, mushrooms, chopped chicken, red pepper flakes, and cover with 1 cup of cheese and half of the Green salsa.
  • 3
    Repeat layers once more. Top with remaining 4 tostada shells, last cup of salsa, and 1 cup of shredded cheese.
  • 4
    Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.

    In a hurry? I get a cooked rotisserie chicken & bone as a substitute, delete Spike & lemon juice & cut remaining ingredients in half. Bake as directed
