Chicken and Eggplant Parmigiano

Chicken Eggplant Parmigiano Women have helped me be more creative with my cooking. Not so much with the recipes, but with their peculiarities. For instance, Selma Krapoff, our Head of Slim Merch, is on a new kick. She wants protein with every meal. And nothing can be fried. Not even sautéed.
