TIPS
Slice squash, zucchini, and eggplant lengthwise about a 1/4 –inch or so.
Lay them on a kitchen towel, and sprinkle sea salt on top. Allow it to rest for half an hour.
Then using a towel dab the moisture out of them, and now they are ready for perfect grilling.
Cut the chicken piece into half and then flatten them in thin slices.
If you do not have Tuscan grill then you may use a mixture of salt pepper, and thyme.
Do not overcook the chicken. Slightly underdone is perfect.
You may use any kind of cheese. Spicy jack cheese will make the dish a little spicy.
