Prep the chicken
- Place the chicken on a large piece of plastic wrap and sprinkle the meat with a few drops of water. Cover with another piece of plastic wrap and pound with a rolling pin or a heavy frying pan to flatten to an even thickness of about ½ inch. Remove the plastic wrap, pat the chicken dry with a paper towel, and season with salt and pepper.
- Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. With a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
- On a plate or shallow bowl, season the almond meal with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
Cook the chicken

- Coarsely chop the tomatoes.
- Coarsely chop the arugula.
In a medium bowl, stir together the onion, tomatoes, arugula, and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] balsamic dressing; season to taste with salt and pepper and more dressing, if desired. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the squash.
Prep and cook the squash
- Cut the squash lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
- Season and spread the almond meal.
- Stir the balsamic dressing and tomato salsa.
- Top the chicken with the salsa.
