Ingredients

    1 eggplant, peeled and cut into 12 slices
    2 tbsp shredded Parmesan cheese
    1/2 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, minced
    3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped
    1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large green pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
    3/4 tsp dried Italian seasoning
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions

Preheat the broiler.

Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on a nonstick baking sheet. Mist the slices with cooking spray. Broil 4 inches from heat for 2 minutes, or until golden. Turn the eggplant over and mist again. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garlic. Broil for 1 minute, or until golden. Set aside.

Heat a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes, or until no longer pink. Add the tomatoes (with juice), onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and black pepper, stirring to break up the tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Coat an 8" baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange 6 eggplant slices in the bottom of the dish. Top with the chicken mixture. Arrange the remaining 6 eggplant slices over the chicken. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese. Cover with foil and finish cooking, or refrigerate until the next day. Or wrap and freeze for up to 3 weeks.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes, or until heated through. To cook frozen casserole, bake, covered, at 375 for 50 minutes, or until heated through.
