  3. Add 1 teaspoon of the olive oil to a medium skillet and heat over medium-high. Add the chicken, lime juice, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning. Cook, without disturbing, until the chicken is golden brown on the bottom. Flip the chicken and continue cooking until cooked through. Transfer the chicken to a medium bowl.

    Transfer to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

What if I Can't Find Tostadas?

You can find packaged tostada shells in many grocery stores, but if you cannot find them by you, there are several other options:

  • Buy crunchy taco shells and break them in half. 
  • Buy soft corn tortillas and fry them yourself.
  • Use your favorite tortilla chip (even Doritos work great).
