“I bought a box of frozen breaded eggplants, then had to figure out what to do with them! Eggplant Parmigiana would have been just too easy, so I decided to do this instead. You can kick up the flavor by using provolone cheese instead of mozzarella. You can also add a slice of proscuitto between the chicken and the eggplant, if you wish. I was just trying to keep this recipe as economical as possible.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Bake eggplant according to package directions (which is approximately 10 minutes). Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
  3. Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to skillet and cook, turning once, until lightly golden, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. On same pan used to bake eggplant, place chicken cutlets in single layer. Top each cutlet with about 2 T. sauce, eggplant slices, 2 more T. sauce and sliced cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. In pot, toss pasta with remaining sauce; heat through. Serve chicken with pasta and garnish with basil leaves.
