Baked Eggplant Fan and Chicken Thighs

Eggplants have an incredible taste, so let’s cut them in a fan pattern and bake them with other veggies and with fried chicken thighs. Eggplants’ bitter-tangy taste will mix deliciously with the other flavors. And the fans not only look fancier, but they also cook much faster. Serve them warm or cold.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
