Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • About 1 cup small pasta shapes (or make rice or just serve with bread)
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Salt
  • About 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 2 medium eggplant - trimmed and cut into large pieces
  • 1 medium onion - chopped
  • 1/2 minced jalapeño - seeds removed
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 large tomato - cut into a large dice
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • A few minced chives and/or parsley leaves

Directions

  1. 1

    Boil water for the pasta. When it’s ready, salt well and add the pasta, cooking according to package directions. Drain, toss with a little olive oil, and set aside.

  2. 2

    Cut the chicken breasts into 3 pieces each. Season the chicken pieces generously on both sides with lots of salt and pepper. Place the flour on a plate or shallow bowl, and dip the the chicken pieces in, then shake off the excess.

  3. 3

    Set a large skillet over high heat for 5 minutes, until very hot. Pour in enough oil to coat the surface, then turn the heat down to medium-high. Brown the chicken until golden on each side, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Be sure not to crowd the pan—better to do this in two batches. Remove to a plate. (Don’t taste the chicken, it’s likely not fully cooked).

  4. 4

    Add a little more oil, then add the eggplant pieces and cook until brown, 3 minutes, then flip and cook another 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, then push the eggplant to the side and add add the onions, pepper, and garlic, and continue cooking until the eggplant and the onions are soft, 2 to 5 minutes. Add the tomato and cook another minute or two, til it releases its juices.

  5. 5

    Return the chicken to the pot, then add the almond milk. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium-low and cook until thickened and the chicken is done, about 5 minutes. Drizzle on the vinegar, and taste for salt. Serve over the pasta and garnish with minced chives.

Notes

  • Salt as you go in this one. That’s always important in cooking, but between the white meat, the eggplant, and the tomatoes, this one really needs to be well-salted to sing.
