  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound Italian eggplant, ends trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 large cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

Make It

1. Bring a medium-size saucepan of water to a boil. Lightly salt; add carrots and beans. Cook for 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper.

3. Add chicken and cook for 6 to 7 minutes, turning once, until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a plate and reserve.

4. Add remaining tablespoon of oil to skillet. Add onion, eggplant and garlic; cook for 7 minutes, until eggplant is tender. Add a few tablespoons of water to skillet as needed to prevent sticking. Stir occasionally.

5. Stir together broth, cornstarch, Italian seasoning, red pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to skillet. Stir in cooked carrots, beans and chicken. Bring to a simmer and add tomatoes. Cook until thickened and ingredients are heated through.

6. Stir in the basil and vinegar. Serve with cooked pasta or noodles, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
