Eggplant Stack with Chicken Cutlet


Last night I was looking through my fridge to decide what I could quickly whip up for dinner before I taught my Group Power class.

I had chicken, ricotta, and grilled eggplant so I came up with a somewhat easy recipe that literally takes NO skill but tastes great. I will definitely be making it again because Marc and I devoured our plates.

The directions may look complicated but it really isn’t hard! I had some leftover grilled eggplant so that is what I used but the directions call for baking the eggplant in the oven.

You can barely see the chicken because it is smothered in creamy saucy ricotta goodness :)




1 medium eggplant

1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast

1 container of Part Skim Ricotta cheese

1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce

3/4 cup of bread crumbs (I use 4 seasons)

1/2 cup egg whites

olive oil


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Cut eggplant into slices and chicken breasts into medium size chunks. Place sliced eggplant on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Stick the eggplant in the oven for about 20 minutes flipping half way.

In a large pan add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and turn the heat to medium-high. Place chicken on a dish, add egg whites to a medium size bowl, and breadcrumbs onto a separate dish. Take chicken and dunk into the egg whites and then into the breadcrumbs & add to the frying pan. Repeat until all chicken is coated and frying in the olive oil.


Once chicken is golden brown on each side (about 4 mins per side) place them on a baking sheet and stick them in the oven for another 10 minutes until eggplant is done cooking. Heat up sauce in a small sauce pan.

Finally, once everything is done you will start to layer it all together on a dish. Chicken, a little sauce, ricotta, eggplant, then sauce, then a little more ricotta, eggplant and top with sauce!!


We enjoyed this meal with a side of whole grain pasta! YUM.
