eggplant-wrapped chicken for passoverServings: 4-6

Wine Pairing: Domaine Netofa Red

 

INGREDIENTS

Eggplant:

1 tall eggplant

½ cup oil

¼ teaspoon salt

Pinch of coarse black pepper

 

Meat Mixture:

3 tablespoons oil

1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ lb. ground meat

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder

 

Chicken:

6 boneless skinless chicken thighs

¼ teaspoon salt

Pinch of course black pepper

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to broil. Grease a baking sheet. Cut eggplant lengthwise, ¼-inch thick, to get 6 or 7 slices. Reserve remaining eggplant scraps. Place eggplant slices on prepared baking sheet. Brush slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil 5 minutes per side, until second side is beginning to brown. The slices should appear as if they were fried. Remove and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 350°F.

3. Peel and finely dice remaining eggplant to obtain ½ cup diced eggplant. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and diced eggplant and sauté until soft, about 5-7 minutes.

4. In a small bowl, combine onion mixture with ground meat. Season with salt and garlic powder.

5. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Place a tablespoon of the meat mixture into each thigh and roll up to close. Roll an eggplant slice around each stuffed chicken thigh. Place, seam side down and close together, in a baking pan. Cover and bake for 2½ hours.
