Balsamic and Tomato Roast Chicken
Apparently I went on a chicken binge at the grocery store and I needed to finish off the stockpile...and fast. I used some in my last post "It's Soy Simple" and I just finished off the rest using my favorite...eggplant! This recipe was so easy to put together. I added my own special touch of placing the eggplant/chicken dinner on top of Tofu Shirataki fettuccine. Remember my rant about the tofu noodles it in my curried shrimp post? To avoid repeating myself, you can checkout my shameless plug for the product at
