So guess what I’ve been eating for the past 3 days in a row;) If you guessed Chicken Eggplant Parmesan, then you guessed right;) I’m just a big fan of casserole style dishes that refrigerate so well that they often taste even better the following (and the one after that…) day. I like to make casseroles on Sundays so I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat for lunch on Monday and Tuesday. It makes those two dreadful first days of the week that much easier!
Chicken Eggplant Parmesan is a perfect casserole dish in case you want to stay away from red meat and wheat and still want something substantial to help you last through the day. I’m always impressed how well roasted eggplant mimics lasagna noodles. You literally can’t tell the difference. But your gut can. You will feel so much lighter after eating this low carb, gluten free version of chicken Parmesan versus the original. Extra bonus – eggplant has a ton of health benefits. It has high anti-oxidant content and impressive nutrient density. In fact, eggplant offers as many as 27 health benefits as described in Well-Being Secrets article.
Cheesy and crusty, this dish is multi-layered treat for the taste buds. Extremely straightforward to make, Eggplant Chicken Parmesan presents well, and can be served for a special occasion. Pairs great with Pino Grigio and other white wines. Try it, you won’t be disappointed!
