Chicken breasts with eggplant and roasted red pepper sauce

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Red bell peppers
2 smalls Eggplant (Italian or Chinese)
2 tablespoons Olive oil; (2 to 4)
4 \N Skinless boneless chicken breasts halves
1 \N Onion; sliced
1 \N Garlic clove; chopped
¼ cup Red wine vinegar; or white
\N \N Fresh herbs; as noted

HERBS: 1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs, such as thyme or parsley.

To Roast Peppers: Place the peppers on the grill or under the broiler, turning them, until charred all over, nearly black. Remove and place in a plastic bag to steam off skin. When cool enough to handle, remove charred skin and seed them.

Preheat the grill or broiler. Halve the eggplant, score in 2 or 3 places, and brush with some of the oil. Place on the grill, cut side towards the heat. Turn after 5 minutes. Cook until almost soft. Add the chicken breasts and cook 3 minutes on each side, until done. Remove to a plate. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan until singing. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until soft. Puree the peppers and vinegar in a food processor or blender until smooth. Add the puree, eggplants, and chicken to the frying pan, and heat together, about 5 minutes. Place the chicken mixture on a platter surrounded by the eggplant and sauce. Sprinkle with the herbs.
