  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.

Just made this! Really nice and so easy. The chicken took a little longer than it said here but stayed moist and was well worth the wait - parmesan topping was delicious. Will definitely be making this again!

Tasted fantastic, I was really surprised by just how good it was (I had 2nds then 3rds!). I found that I needed a fair amount more parmesan than it says. Will defintely do this one again. Really fresh flavour the white wine vinegar with the potatoes and salad makes all the difference.

Lovely though not particularly filling. Though being a fairly healthy dish a large dessert was in order :-)

I was concerned at how tastey this would be as the salad contained only a few ingredients, but it was delish! The chicken was really flavoursome and the salad really complimented it. Will certainly be making again soon.

Really lovely recipe. I chopped up some smoked back bacon , crisped it up in some olive oil and stirred it in at the same time as the potaoes and peas with a finely chopped spring onion which was really good. Definately making it again

One of my favourites. I find it easier to make with two egg whites and I use more than five spoonfuls of parmesan. It takes longer to make than twenty minutes but it's well worth it. Do yourself a favour - make this!
