  • Blend eggs and milk together in a large bowl. Place bread crumbs in another large bowl. Dip eggplant slices first into egg mixture, then bread crumbs, coating well. Fry in batches in hot oil, turning to brown evenly, then transfer to a paper towel-lined dish to drain. Repeat process for the chicken, lightly browning but not overcooking.

  • Generously grease a large, deep baking dish. Working in single layers, arrange eggplant, then chicken, then shredded mozzarella cheese, until all ingredients are gone. Pour Alfredo sauce evenly over the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Increase heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for another 20 minutes. Serve hot.

YUM! This is REALLY good. I only breaded and fried the eggplant and used leftover baked chicken instead of what the recipe called for and it tasted fabulous! However make sure you thoroughly drain your eggplant on papertowels... I thought I did but had a pool of grease at the bottom of the casserole dish. Read More

This recipe turned out fabulous. We pretty much followed the recipe as is except that made our own alfredo sauce and reduced the baking time by about 15 mins. We loved this recipe!!! Read More

It was very good and my husband liked it a lot. I made my own Alfredo sauce using evaporated milk instead of cream. I also panfried the eggplant and chicken hoping it will be less greasy than when deep fried and drained them well but it was still very greasy after baking. I have to skim the grease before serving. However my husband wants me to make it again. I have to admit it was really good. Read More

This recipe is flavourable but a lot of work and greasy that's why 4 stars. I goofed and cooked chicken breasts as is. Just one tweak - the Alfredo Sauce. I made a roux then added a bottle of Alfredo Sauce milk to thin crushed garlic pesto cooking white wine mustard fresh chopped mushrooms red pepper and green onion. Salt and pepper. Simmered sauce for 15 mins or so. As others suggested I soaked up the grease from eggplant & chicken. I used a lot of papertowel!! When I served this hot from the oven the egg plant seemed to disintegrate. Perhaps from the weight of entire chicken breasts and eggplant cut too thin? Next time I won't deep-fry. Perhaps simmer strips of chicken breast in sauce to pre-cook layer eggplant as is. Read More

My Husband loves this. I had to tell the kids the eggplant were green noodles but they ate it. This one is a keeper. Read More

I find jar Alfredo to be rather bland so I added garlic powder nutmeg and dried basil after pouring in the sauce. I was too lazy after working w/ that eggplant so I just fried the chicken strips in the same pan and the leftover bits of bread crumbs browned into the chicken nicely. Kind of a heavy meal but sneaks a vegetable in nicely for the kids. Thanks:-)! Read More

This was awesome!! I probably added way more cheese than was necessary but we love cheese. I was a littel nervous with eggplant as I've never made it before and my hubby doesn't really like it. but he even thought it was delicious!! Read More
