Loved the salad, but felt the chicken dried out a tad. Still a lovely dish if the chicken was a bit more moist it would have been perfect.

brilliant and easy to make! goes with anything, satisfies the tastebuds and the stomach. i replaced the parmesan with gran padano cheese and it was an amazing dish. great with noisette potatoes also on this website!

Just made this for a midweek meal. Was yummy! I changed the potatoes to roasted in olive oil in the oven with some spice on them and really finished the meal off well. Will be making again!
