Loved the salad, but felt the chicken dried out a tad. Still a lovely dish if the chicken was a bit more moist it would have been perfect.

brilliant and easy to make! goes with anything, satisfies the tastebuds and the stomach. i replaced the parmesan with gran padano cheese and it was an amazing dish. great with noisette potatoes also on this website!

Just made this for a midweek meal. Was yummy! I changed the potatoes to roasted in olive oil in the oven with some spice on them and really finished the meal off well. Will be making again!

This is a family favourite. I put the chicken on a bed of couscous instead which includes some fried onion or spring onion, peas and tomatoes with zest and juice of a lemon. Kids love the couscous. Its so quick and great midweek.

This recipe was fantastic. I decided to add a few Italian herbs and mixed herbs to the Parmesan, and also, dry frying some chopped pancheta and sprinkling over the top add some lovely flavour to the dish! Fantastic and will definitely make again.

Very nice, easy recipe. Takes next to no time to prepare.
May wish to add a little more white wine vinegar depedant on taste.
Enjoyed with a nice glass of white wine.
Very nice meal.

What can I say! Entire family loved this which is an achievement I can tell you! I used shop bought garlic and herb potatoes which I microwaved and and then chopped and added to a herb salad with asparagus and green beans. Fab!

it was ok. a bit too cheesey. not sure where you're getting your timings from but i'm pretty sure chicken and potatoes take alot longer than 10-12 mins to cook unless cut into very small pieces.

Quick and easy to make but the chicken was a little plain. Might add garlic to it and maybe a cream cheese and chive filling.
