Chicken Tostada with Mango-Melon Slaw

Chicken Tostada with Mango-Melon Slaw

"When entertaining, consider having a tostada bar. Hormel® Taco Meats™, which are all natural and pre-cooked, make a perfect pairing with your favorite taco toppings. For this recipe we chose an unexpected fruit slaw with watermelon and mango for a refreshing twist. But you can also provide a host of salsas, cheeses, vegetables, and peppers, giving your guest the freedom to create their own super fun tostadas.” – Chef Angela Sellers

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
