Marks & Spencer ESPANA Marinated Chicken with Patatas Bravas and Garlic Alioli [by @ NLi10]

Recently I got bought a Marks and Spemcer ready meal from their recently launched ESPANA range, and quite enjoyed it!  This has resulted in another trip to the similar Spanish packet meal section with very similar results.

This time we have a few strips of marinated chicken, a lot of patatas bravas and a sachet of what I believe is garlic mayo.  When heated for the required time and plated out it looks like this.

As you can see - I need to practice my drizzle effect.  The food itself was actually again rather nice, but more muted in flavour.  The small amount of strong flavoured sausage suited the other dish well, but the chicken strips get a little lost here.  The potato is more than good enough to compensate though and the balance is still one that is both pleasing  and filling.  I did feel it lacked in the vegetable area, but this wasn't a deal breaker.

I'm sure that we will continue to try this range and discover its full repertoire - at least until they move onto another nationality's cuisine!
