*Serves 2* 
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 2 chicken fillets (each 5 oz) , pounded
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice,
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • ½ tbsp chopped thyme
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  1. To make the marinade, in a small glass combine the thyme, 1/8 tsp of chili flakes, 1 tbsp of lemon juice and pinch of salt. Place the chicken in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade into the bag. Seal the bag tightly and marinate the chicken in a refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  2. In a small bowl combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, parsley and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Season to taste and set aside. Heat a barbecue until hot. Cut the zucchini into 1/2 ” thick lengthwise slices. Brush the slices with 1 tbsp of olive oil and grill for 2 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken from the marinade, brush with 1 tbsp of olive oil and grill for 3 minutes on each side. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes and make the avocado sauce.
  3. Place the avocado, remaining chili flakes, 1 tbsp of olive oil and remaining lemon juice in a bowl and coarsely mash with a fork. Season to taste.
  4. Chop the chicken into bite size pieces. To assemble bruschetta, top zucchini slices with avocado sauce, chopped grilled chicken and tomato salsa and serve.
