Being a young mom, most of my recipes are quick and easy. I love making new things and I have really developed quite a repertoire of recipes lately. I especially love cooking for others and making things for parties or pot luck events.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus some for drizzling
Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill to medium-high heat. Preheat the broiler.
Drizzle the eggplant slices and chicken cutlets with EVOO and season with salt and pepper. On one half of the grill place the eggplant slices and on the other half, place the chicken. Cook the eggplant and chicken for about 4 minutes per side. There should be no pink in the middle of the chicken.
To assemble, place 2 slices of eggplant on a baking sheet. Top the eggplant with a chicken cutlet. Drizzle some of the tomato sauce on top of the chicken and top that with a slice or two of smoked mozzarella. Finish it off with a handful of grated Parmigiano and pop under the broiler to melt the cheese. Garnish with some chopped or torn basil leaves.
I served with a salad and bread...yummy!
