Chicken-Zucchini Chilaquiles

Serves 4
½ cup vegetable oil
15 corn tortillas, quartered
1 small zucchini, cut into ½-inch pieces
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
1 cup tomatillo salsa
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for topping
1 cup shredded mozzarella or Mexican cheese blend
Sliced radishes and chopped red onion, for topping

Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the tortillas and cook, turning with  tongs, until golden, about 3 minutes; drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the zucchini; cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 2  minutes. Stir in the chicken, tomatillo salsa, ¾ cup water and the cilantro; bring to a simmer and cook 2  minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Spread half of the fried tortillas in an 8-inch-square baking dish. Top with  about half of the chicken mixture and ½ cup cheese. Cover with the remaining tortillas, then the remaining  chicken mixture and cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve topped with radishes, red onion and cilantro.
