Default Moroccan Chicken With Eggplant Ragout (South Beach

Moroccan Chicken With Eggplant Ragout (South Beach

This flavorful chicken entree proves that weight loss is no longer a matter of deprivation. On the South Beach Diet®, you can lose weight, improve your health, and eat scrumptious and satisfying foods! Click here for the recipe.
Phase 1
Serves 2
Don't be scared off by the number of ingredients in this dish; it all comes together quickly for a hearty yet slightly exotic meal. Remember to save some of the liquid drained from the beans for your sauce.
Ingredients
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper
2 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 medium (about 8 ounces) eggplant, unpeeled, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 cup garbanzo beans and 1/4 cup liquid drained from can
8 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Instructions
1. Combine a teaspoon of the oil with the vinegar, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, salt, and pepper in a glass dish. Add chicken breasts; turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
2. Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Using tongs, transfer chicken to platter; tent with foil to keep warm. In same skillet, cook eggplant and onion 8 minutes, until soft and slightly browned, stirring often. Stir in garbanzo beans with liquid, tomatoes, and lemon juice. Cook 3 minutes, smashing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon and stirring to blend flavors and warm through. Transfer to platter with chicken; garnish with parsley.
