  1. Mix together the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Dust the chicken strips with the flour and shake off any excess. Dip the chicken in the beaten egg until thoroughly coated and then coat in the cheese and breadcrumb mixture.
  2. To make the lemon-mayo dip, mix together 1 tsp lemon juice with the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the new potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain, season with salt and pepper and toss with 1 tbsp margarine/butter. In a separate pan, cook the green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil and 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp margarine/butter over a low heat in a frying pan and cook the garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add the green beans and 2 tsp lemon juice and toss together. Season with salt and pepper.
