  • Place eggplant, cut-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle garlic over each and coat with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until eggplant is mostly tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Add chicken, tomatoes, and Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese to each eggplant. Continue cooking in the oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Top each with scallions and basil.

Cook's Note:

Cheddar cheese can replace the Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese, if desired.

The family loved this! I used Fresh-picked eggplant, tomatoes, & banana peppers. I also used chicken I had previously cooked with Badia seasoning; that added plenty of flavor! Used dried chives & parsley on top of the cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese. Many didn’t even realize they were eating eggplant! Read More

Very bland I would make it lemonier spicier or make it into a dessert with brown sugar/cinnimon. Read More

I like things on the spicy side so I grilled chicken breast with ground fennel seed and coriander. I didn't have scallions so added some white onion with the tomatoes and chicken. Since I didn't have basil and had added spices to the chicken I didn't garnish it with anything. I used Monterey Jack cheese. It turned out very nice and it was even better today when I brought some to work for my lunch. It took little effort and time to make. Read More
