Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup diced eggplant
3 eggs
1/2 cup ricotta
6 spears canned asparagus, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated mozzarella
1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning chicken
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more for seasoning chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
2/3 cup prepared tomato sauce
1/2 cup diced tomatoes


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-heat. Add eggplant and saute until tender, about 5


minutes. Drain and set aside.


In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 egg with the ricotta. Stir in the reserved eggplant, asparagus, 1/4 cup of


the mozzarella, 1/4 cup Parmesan, oregano, salt, and pepper. Set aside.


Put the chicken breasts in a large plastic bag and pound until very thin and of even thickness.


Remove chicken from bag and season with salt and pepper. Spoon a generous dollop of the cheese


mixture near the bottom edge of 1 piece of chicken and roll it into a cylinder, around the filling,


like a jelly roll. Repeat with remaining chicken.


Beat the remaining eggs in a shallow bowl and put the flour and bread crumbs on separate plates. In a large skillet, melt the butter and shortening. Dredge the chicken rolls-ups in the flour, dip in


the beaten eggs, and then coat them with bread crumbs. Place the rolls-ups in the skillet and cook


until golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes.


Spread the tomato sauce in a shallow baking dish and place the roll-ups over the sauce. Sprinkle


with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake for 30 minutes.


Divide the roll-ups among 4 plates, spooning some sauce over the top. Sprinkle with diced tomato and


serve immediately.
