Who would have thought eggplant & chicken together? Very tasty meal, easy to make. I added a little garlic to the browning of the chicken. The olive oil & white wine sauce gives it a fantastic taste.
This is scrumptious, and really easy to make. I will use chicken broth instead of water to make the sauce next time to give it a little bit of a stronger flavor. The chicken and eggplant become close friends in this dish, truly complementing each other. This is really a winner.
I made the recipe according to the directions but still came away with a totally different impression compared to the other reviewers. I love eggplant and love chicken so this should have been a winner. I will not make this again for several reasons.
First, it does not form a sauce, but, instead a broth. I boiled and reduced the water and wine but still ended up with nothing appetizing.
Second, the chicken was dry as a bone. Despite frying and pouring the broth over it, it was difficult to eat.
Third, the recipe dirties an amazing amount of dishes. Two frying pans, two warming plates and a broiling pan. It seemed excessive.
Fourth, everything is fried in butter or oil. We did eat some of the dish (as there was nothing else for dinner). Everyone ended up with indigestion due to the massive amounts of grease.
Sorry, I will not make this again.
Excellent recipe. We loved the final result, and not too timely to make. Used the chicken broth, but wife wanted more gravy, will make more next time. I also added some parmesan to the bread crumbs for added flavor.
I certainly wish I could have rated this higher. My dh and ds absolutely loved it and it was also very filling. I liked Paula's idea to make it with a chicken stock rather than water which I did and the other thing I did I had Bruschetta made from the night before which I served with it as a topper with a tsp. to add a little extra..but it really didn't need it. It was great by itself. This is a keeper!! Thank you so much for sharing this delicious and elegant dinner.
