Chicken Eggplant Lasagna

Chicken Eggplant Lasagna18

Since my Zucchini Lasagna has been so popular, I have decided to make an eggplant version. This is a nice creamy version filled with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and artichokes. I also learned an easy trick to for removing some of the water from the eggplant. Simply bake the eggplant slices before putting them in the lasagna. You will love this cheesy rendition of the classic lasagna dish.
