Chicken Sinatra w/ Pictures

Went out to dinner a few days ago and my girlfriend ordered the "chicken sinatra" it was a chicken breast topped with an eggplant slice and mozzerella cheese over angel hair and mushrooms in a wine tomato sauce... it wasnt all that great as it was really dry and everything was just too soupy but i liked the idea and thought id try it out tonite....



Instead of the soupy mess wine/tomato sauce i went with vermicelli fra diablo and i butterflied the breasts so they wouldn't be so dry. turned out pretty good... the spicy sauce gave it a nice kick.

Keltin Funny one! JerseyJay, that dish does sound really good to me too. I love chicken, eggplant, mozzarella, and of course pasta sauce, though I'm not keen on angel hair pasta, too thin for me. I like your re-creation!

i prefer bowties or penne myself but i used what they did... i usually fry the pasta and sauce together in a pan over high heat for a minute or so...stiffens it up bit... might want to try it out

Ok, just to make sure I didn’t step on any toes here. Sinatra…..Frank Sinatra.......sang a song called “My Way”. Famous for it, but that was way back in the day, and some younger folk may not know it. I’m not terribly old (but hey, who is?!?!?!), but Grandma and Mom LOVED Ole Blue Eyes, so I’m a bit versed in some of his works.

Here’s a verse from the song he is so well known for:

"And more, much more than this, I did it my way"

Which, in this case of Sinatra Pasta….you DID do it your way!

No I haven't seen that! I'll have to try and catch that on the SNL re-runs! Sounds good.

You know, jersey, you might want to "kick it up a notch" by breading the eggplant slice in egg and panko and lightly browning/frying it before you add it to the main dish. This would add another level of texture. Just my take.
