What can I say to add to these comments - just try it. it is Great.

the chicken pamesan topping took longer to brown and crisp but that may be becasue I had the grill too low. Lovely moist and tasty.... veg great too. I used fresh green beans instead of peas.

The chicken was good, but the salad was bland. A nice recipe, but lots of other better ones on this website.

Delish. The whole meal tasted light and tasty. In fact I am doing the veg with another recipe on this site as it is so easy, light, quick and tasty and most of the ingredients will be in your storecupboard. This is one for my "favourites book" to be cooked again soon.

Very easy and quick to make. I have made this a couple of times since and it makes a great lunch or easy starter. I have also mixed a little breadcrumbs and finely ground mixed nuts to give a different taste and texture.

I gave this recipe a try and to be honest I thought the parmesan would burn before the chicken was cooked though, but I was wrong. It was delicious, everyone in the family enjoyed this, very summery with the new potatoes, spinach and peas. Will be making this again soon!!

Fresh, tasty, lovely flavour combinations and reasonably healthy. Went down well with everyone and simple to make. I would definitely recommend this recipe and would make it again. For a vegetarian version I had the salad with slices of haloumi griddled simply in a little olive oil. Went very well with the flavours of the salad. Lovely.

It was yummy, I want more. Used a balsamic dressing instead of the white wine vinegar and it worked a treat, also added breadcrumbs to the cheese and shallow fried in chilli oil which added a lovely little kick. Will do again very soon!

It's a bit fiddely and messy to begin with but well worth it as this is a delicious meal and looks good on the plate too. Substituted peas for green beans, think I can definately impress with this one in the future

Oven baked the chicken breasts as they were quite big, perfect! Will serve with colcannon mash next time.

The parmesan chicken was absolutely gorgeous, though I did have to cook it for a fair bit longer than stated. I wasn't overly keen on the rest, it was a little on the bland side. Next time I will probably serve with a caesar salad, as recommended, or serve with jacket and ranch salad.

So quick and easy, get the children involved and dipping the chicken in the cheese......my two love this. Also for a change try coating the potatoes and peas in a spoonful of fresh pesto instead of the salad dressing. Really really tasty.
