Replacing chicken with eggplant

Hello! I have very fond memories of Chicken Marballa from my childhood, and want to try replacing chicken with eggplant. I found this recipe and have made the marinade, and am sort of puzzled has to how to cook it with the eggplant, Roast the eggplant first and then pour the marinade on and roast some more? Roast and then fry in a pan? Add some liquid to the marinade and then cook on the stove? Would some other vegetable be a much better chicken sub than eggplant (portabello mushroom?) thanks!
