Paleo and Keto Tip: For a delicious grain free tostadas shell lightly charred green cabbage leaves. To prepare green cabbage tostadas shells, remove the core with a sharp knife. Carefully separate the outer leaves to use as tostadas cups. The cabbage “shell” can be served raw or brushed with oil and broiled until charred.

Add chicken to a hot skillet. Cook chicken on the first side for 1 minute without stirring. Turn chicken strips over with tongs, and heat for 1 minute, without stirring. Add chile verde sauce, adjust heat to low. Add lime juice, cilantro, and hot sauce, and remove from simmer for 30 seconds.
Microwave Method: The chicken can be prepared in the microwave for ease of cleaning-up! Pour the entire contents of the chicken pouch into a microwave safe bowl. Cover bowl, and microwave on high for 1 minute, or until hot.
