Chicken Roasted on Eggplant & Jessica

This was a perfect weeknight easy meal that didn't require much babysitting. Assemble, pop in the oven then serve. Three of us enjoyed the meal very much. One of us sat in the cold garage and threw eggplant up on his plate (he got sent to the garage because we got sick of hearing *do I have to eat ALL the eggplant?* and *I licked the eggplant, can I be done?* and *if I eat 3 oranges or 6 bananas INSTEAD of my 1" chunk of eggplant, can I be done?*)

This doesn't have anything to do with anything, but I went on a walk and saw this piece of bark on the ground and it really made my day.

1 eggplant (thickly sliced) *but not too thick, mine was a little too thick, I'd say 3/4" thick would be perfect
3 tomatoes (It called for roma, but I used a zebra)
1 Tbs. oregano leaves
sea salt & cracked black pepper
4 chicken breast fillets
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 355 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the eggplant slices on the tray and top with the tomatoes, oregano, salt & pepper. Top each pile with a chicken breast and sprinkle with the parmesan and mozzarella. Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and the chicken is cooked through.

And by the way, he sat in the garage because he wouldn't even eat his chicken peacefully. I made his without tomatoes and gave him about a 1 square inch chunk of eggplant. He was not being tortured with a whole plate of it. 90% of his plate was pasta and chicken with cheese. Grrrr. Jessica
