  • Recipe Serves: 8
  • Prep Time : 30 min
  • Marinate for 30 min
  • Cook Time : 20 min

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 4 Tbsp. lime juice, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon, divided
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 poblano peppers, roasted*, peeled and seeded
  • 1 container (16 oz.) Mexican crema
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 bag (4 oz.) watercress (about 6 cups)
  • 1 grapefruit, sectioned and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 4 radishes, cut into thin strips
  • 16 corn tostadas**

Directions

  1. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon in large resealable plastic bag; add chicken and turn to coat. Close bag and marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile process poblano peppers, crema and remaining 1 tablespoon Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon in blender until smooth. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook garlic, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in poblano mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining 3 tablespoons lime juice and cilantro.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill or broil chicken, turning once, until thoroughly cooked, about 8 minutes. Thinly slice chicken and stir into Sauce.
  4. Combine watercress, grapefruit, onions and radishes in large bowl; set aside.
  5. Evenly divide chicken onto tostadas, then mound watercress mixture on tostadas. Drizzle, if desired, with additional lime juice.

* To roast peppers, arrange peppers in a broiler pan lined with aluminum foil and broil, turning occasionally, about 8 minutes or until blackened on all sides. Wrap in foil and let cool.

**SUBSITUTION: To make your own tostadas, fry corn tortillas in small skillet in oil, one at a time, turning once, until crisp; drain on paper towels.
