  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.

Wow this dish was so easy to make and the ingridants easy to get hold of it was a delight to make for guests in a hurry and it tasted beautiful with its blend of flavours and textures loved it

I would echo many of the positives about this recipe, it was lovely and i will do again, however just a couple of observations. Firstly I either dredged up too much egg whites o to the fillets or my Parmesan was not grated finely enough because by the fourth fillet the Parmesan was coagulating into little balls, and secondly grilling with foil underneath did protect the grill pan but also melted the cheese on the underside at the same time as the top and I found myself grating a little more Parmesan over the fillet after turning them. I'll may be use a silicone baking sheet or parchment next time and see how that works. Other than that it was light tasty and very enjoyable.

Amazing dish, really easy to make and so tasty. We use sweet potato instead of normal potato and gives it an even better taste.

just did the chicken, not the salad, but was very nice indeed!

Easy, tasty and went down well with husband. Cooked the chicken in the oven rather than under the grill, took slightly longer but still worked well. The dressing and salad complement the parmesan chicken. Would recommend this one to do again.

This is a brilliant recipe, this make me stumbling to your site. I made it for my husband last night. It is simple and delicious. You just can't go wrong cheese and butter. I didn't follow the exact instruction, I replace tomato pasta sauce with pesto pasta sauce. This chicken will go well with rice too. Thanks for sharing all the valuable instructions. Lisa
