Has anyone tried this with a cheaper hard cheese? I assume the parmesan is crispy and I want to try to get the same sort of texture without paying for what counts as 'posh' cheese in our house (yay for being a poor student :) )

This was brilliant. So simple and easy to make. I added some breadcrumbs to the parmasean and some broad beans to the salad. I loved it. One of the best recipes for any chicken summer food I have ever used :)

This is a variation of a recipe I've done for several years, which always goes down a treat. I use breadcrumbs and grated parmesan, moistened with lemon juice and a little olive oil + black pepper and chopped parsley. Make some incisions in the chicken breasts and spread the mixture over and grill. It's really yummy and you can make up your own amounts of each ingredient to suit. Sadly, I haven't made it this summer, simply because the grill doesn't work on this awful inherited oven from our move in January!! Can't wait for the new oven!!

This meal was delicious! I was slightly concerned when the chicken was under the grill as the smell of Parmesan was very overpowering however it turned out to be a tasty treat!
