Greek Tostadas

Tostadas: (recipes for each to follow)
Pita crisps
Grilled Greek Chicken, chopped
Chopped Greek Salad
Kalamata Olives

To assemble tostadas, lay out each pita crisp. Top with chopped chicken, Chopped Greek Salad and Kalamata oilves. Serve with Rice Pilaf, if desired.

Pita Crisps:
6 whole, prepared pitas (or make your own pitas)
4-5 Tbsp. olive oil
1-2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1-2 Tbsp. greek seasoning

Turn on broiler in oven. Lay out pitas on a cookie sheet. Combine olive oil, lemon juice and greek seasoning in a small bowl. With pastry brush, brush oil mixture liberally on top of each pita. Place under broiler for about 3 minutes, watching carefully! Take out when golden (they go from golden to burnt really quickly so don't walk away).

Greek Chicken:
1-1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinnless chicken breasts (or chicken tenders)
olive oil
Greek seasoning (your favorite)

Preheat outdoor grill. Trim fat from chicken breasts and cut into strips (or just use chicken tenders which are already cut). Slide each piece onto a skewer and line up on a large plate or in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Greek seasoning. Flip and do the same on the other side. Place skewers on grill and cook on medium-low 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove to a plate and let rest 5 minutes.

Chopped Greek Salad:
2 cups roma tomatoes, cubed
1 cup cucumber, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
2 Tbsp. fresh mint leaves
basic vinagrette or greed salad dressing

In medium salad bowl, put chopped tomatoes and cucumbers and crumble feta cheese on top. Chiffonade the mint leaves and gently mix in with a basic vinagrette or Greek salad dressing.
