Method

  1. Heat grill to medium and line the grill pan with foil. Beat the egg white on a plate with a little salt and pepper. Tip the Parmesan onto another plate. Dip the chicken first in egg white, then the cheese. Grill the coated chicken for 10-12 mins, turning once until browned and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 10 mins, adding the peas for the final 3 mins, then drain. Toss the vegetables with the spinach leaves, vinegar, oil and seasoning to taste. Divide between four warm plates, then serve with the chicken.

This meal was delicious! I was slightly concerned when the chicken was under the grill as the smell of Parmesan was very overpowering however it turned out to be a tasty treat!

Made this last night and it was gorgeous! The chicken was moist with a crunchy topping. Substituted the peas with runner beans as this what I had at home - delicious.

Absolutely delicious and SO easy to make. I added some cherry tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar into the grill pan, and it was amazing.
A new firm favourite :)

Absolutely love and so simple. I didn't separate the egg as I wasn't worried about the fat from one egg divided between 4 people. Added some fine lemon zest and fesh thyme to the parmesan and baked it in the oven at rather than having to watch it under the grill. Served with cost pesto, potato and petit pois mixed together and some salad. Definately make this one again.

I just did the chicken and served it with a tomato and pasta sauce and salad. The chicken was moist and is now a firm favourite at our table! Will give the potatoes etc a go though too.

Nice succulent chicken, wasn't convinced that it would only take 12 mins under the grill but even though I used 3 different sized chicken breasts they were all moist and lovely. My son wanted to give this 5 stars for the chicken alone and we had it with caesar salad instead of the salad as don't really like vinegary dressings.

Made this for the first time today. A bit disappointed in how the chicken came out, the parmesan didn't seem to crisp, however the chicken itself tasted lovely and the potatoes, peas and spinach were very nice. I'm going to try this again but use a lot more parmesan.
