Just made this! Really nice and so easy. The chicken took a little longer than it said here but stayed moist and was well worth the wait - parmesan topping was delicious. Will definitely be making this again!

Tasted fantastic, I was really surprised by just how good it was (I had 2nds then 3rds!). I found that I needed a fair amount more parmesan than it says.

Will defintely do this one again. Really fresh flavour the white wine vinegar with the potatoes and salad makes all the difference.

Lovely though not particularly filling. Though being a fairly healthy dish a large dessert was in order :-)

I was concerned at how tastey this would be as the salad contained only a few ingredients, but it was delish! The chicken was really flavoursome and the salad really complimented it. Will certainly be making again soon.

Really lovely recipe. I chopped up some smoked back bacon , crisped it up in some olive oil and stirred it in at the same time as the potaoes and peas with a finely chopped spring onion which was really good. Definately making it again

One of my favourites. I find it easier to make with two egg whites and I use more than five spoonfuls of parmesan. It takes longer to make than twenty minutes but it's well worth it. Do yourself a favour - make this!

Very nice, especially on a warm summer evening.

I have just made this for me and my partner and it was absolutely gorgeous we really enjoyed it and will definitely make it regularly. The chicken stayed nice and moist and the parmesan browned nicely. I served it with garlic and herb potatoes and veg. I made my 2 fussy kids something different but they tasted it and loved it so next time i will make some for them

I made this for 2 and did find that by dipping the chicken in the cheese it pretty much used it all up so think I'll scatter it on next time! However this was so simple and tasty, and excellent on such a warm night. We will be having this again.

PS - used mange tout instead of the peas.

This was just okay.. chicken was moist but the cheese stuck to the foil so I ended up with just plain chicken. The salad was ok, but nothing special. Not a favorite..

Very succulent and tasty. Would definitely cook again - kids asked for more - always a bonus!

One of the easiest and tastiest recipes I have made. YUM YUM :)

I cooked this dish for my 90 year old mother who normally eats very bland food - she loved it, couldn't believe how light it was and commented on the lovely spring/summer 'colours' on her plate! It was very quick to make and my sisters are all requesting copies of 'mum's favourite dish'!

Very tasty. Will use again

i fried off the potatoes in a little garlic oil and really made the texture better although not as healthy! all in all a yummy dish.
