I picked this recipe at random out of one of my recipe books. It looked tasty. More than that though, it looked interesting, mostly because I’ve never cooked before with eggplant or pinenuts.
This was a REALLY tasty meal. It’s incredibly simple (always a plus) and filled with flavor. Perhaps the best part is the sauce that forms in the pan during cooking.
I followed the directions for cooking the eggplant but that stuff got a little dried out and was certainly overcooked. The next time I make this I’ll be looking to do a better job with that.
Along with the ingredients listed in the title there was also some thinly shaved garlic and a little chicken broth.
The white, sauce looking stuff on the chicken in the picture is ricotta cheese.
I liked having this with bread. I wonder what good side dishes may go with this though to round out the meal a little…
It’s been a good week of eating around here with two great homecooked meals and plenty of leftovers to fill the days.
Looking forward to brunch tomorrow.
