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.

Very quick and easy to make and very tasty. Enjoyed by the whole family.

was expecting the cheese to stick to the foil and the chicken not to be cooked after this short time. neither was the case, am absolutely delighted with the result: tender, juicy meat with just a subtle cheese taste. forgot the pepper and salt, didn't actually need any, but will try to remember next time. this will be a regular in my kitchen.

I made these and served them sliced on top of a spring greens risotto with broad beans and parsley sprinkled on top. Went down v well and were really succulent despite me being convinced they wouldn't cook through!

Very disappointed, after reading all the great comments. I thought the chicken was tasteless and not at all juicy. In fact it was quite dry (as you would expect from grilled chicken, I suppose). Definitely not making again.

I marinated the chicken in the juice of 1 lemon for about 1hr.
Then I added salt and pepper before dipping in the egg whites.
After coating with cheese, bake covered at 350 F., for about 20 mins.
Uncover and broil 5 mins. each side.
The golden color alone will impress your guests.

We really loved this dish. The flavours were really fresh and the parmesan gave the chicken a flavoursome bite whilst keeping the meat really moist. We added a dollop of pesto and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar to the potatoes and spinach to add extra flavour.

This was the first meal i attempted after deciding to venture into my kitchen. I have been a convenience food slave due to hectic schedule until a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this website... I picked this meal and loved every second of preparing, cooking and eating eat. Def a favourite for the future...!

This was really easy to make and looked great. The spinach salad is very versatile. I tried it with baked salmon too and this was also really good - very light dressing.

I loved it, on second go substituted Turkey for the chicken, and it was also delicious. It's now in my regular rotation!

Excellent mid week meal. Quick and delicious. Much healthier than the local (Teesside) 'Parmo'!! (Breaded chicken or pork escalope topped with a parmesan bechemal sauce and grilled). Even parmo loving daughter loved it tho' she did say it should be served with chips! (You can take the girl out of Teesside but ...). Me and P liked the veg tho' I'd run out of peas and used green beans instead. Will defo do again.

Really good. Chicken was perfectly cooked and cheese taste was just right - not overpowering. Used watercress instead of spinach

Delicious and very easy to make. With just a small effort, a simple grilled chicken breast seems much more impressive - and the salad is a perfect complement.

Loved this one, so so easy and quick to do and tasted really good with the parmesan. All store cupboard and freezer items.

The chicken was so tender and tasty and crispy

I served it with new baby potato and white asparagus with drizzle of olive oil, parmesan shaved curls and a slice of lemon.

It is on my list of do again, Family loved it.
