Chicken and Eggplant Tomato Sauce Pasta

Chicken and Eggplant Tomato Sauce Pasta

You can prepare this easily with a frying pan! It's quick and delicious!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken tenders
2~3 pieces
Japanese eggplant
1
Canned tomato
1/2 can (you can also use a whole can if you'd like)
Consomme bouillon
1/2 cube
Short pasta of your choice
160g
Salt and pepper
to taste
Honey or oligosaccharide sweetener
to taste
Garlic
2~3 cloves
Olive oil
to taste
Dried basil
to taste

Steps

1. Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper, sprinkle with some sake (not listed in the ingredients), wrap with plastic wrap, and cook in the microwave for 3 minutes. Let cool covered.
2. Chop the garlic. Heat the olive oil and garlic in a frying pan over low heat. When you can smell the garlic aroma, add the eggplant cut into half-moon slices and stir fry.
3. Mash the tomatoes with your hands. I try to make it as juicy as possible.
4. Boil the pasta.
5. Add the consomme bouillon, salt, and pepper seasonings. Also add the basil.
6. The sourness of the tomatoes will vary with each kind. I like a milder taste, so I adjust it with honey or oligo sugar at this step.
7. Shred the chicken with your hands and combine with the boiled pasta. Enjoy!
