    This was quick, easy and delicious. I used 2 eggs as 1 was not enough to do all the eggplant and the chicken (I used 2 boneless breasts sliced thin and 1 medium eggplant). I put the cooked pasta in the bottom of a large casserole dish, spooned a little sauce, layered the cooked chicken and eggplant slices, spooned the rest of the sauce and topped with cheese, and put it in the still-warm oven (turned off) to melt the cheese and keep warm. Really good and very filling.

    My kids gobbled this one up (with the exception of the eggplant). They've never been fans of eggplant though. I used more seasoned bread crumbs. Maybe around 2 cups. The first time I made this I fried the cutlets in a skillet. They turned out very good. My cutlets were a little thicker than normal so I had to finish them off by slowly adding some hot water to the skillet and covering for a few minutes. I wouldn't recommend that though because it can be a bit dangerous. I absolutely hate to fry anything so the next time I made this dish, I baked the breaded cutlets in the oven in a well greased casserole dish on 375 for about 35 minutes. I flipped them once about halfway through and then turned on the broiler for a minute to brown the other side. It was just as good this way as the fried way with a lot less mess. Thanks for the recipe! We're really enjoying it.

    mmmmm,so good! added fettucine on the side and words can't describe. a little time involved for a easily distracted cook such as myself but well worth it. i used more of the bread crumb mixture than recipe called for and added lots of garlic! thanks!
