Marks & Spencer Crispy Lemon Chicken

First Impression

I was in Marks & Spencer looking for a dairy free ready meal when I spotted this Crispy Lemon Chicken.  We don’t normally eat ready meals as we usually struggle to find any that don’t contain garlic but since my husband has eliminated dairy completely from his diet we are now having to look for meals that are both garlic and dairy free (talk about a challenge!).

This meal consisted of five pieces of battered chicken breast and a lemon sauce.  Preparation and cooking was really quick and simple and just involved putting the chicken pieces onto a baking tray and popping into the oven for 20 mins.  You could either microwave the sauce or cook it in a saucepan on the hob.

This crispy lemon chicken was served very simply with boiled rice and we all really enjoyed it.  The lemon sauce was fresh and tangy and the chicken pieces were generously sized and the batter had a really crispy texture.  The meal was lovely and definitely the level of quality you would expect from Marks & Spencer.

We will definitely be having this again.

Sometimes you just can't be bothered to prepare a meal from scratch and this is the perfect solution to that.  The meals can even be frozen so you can have keep a couple of them in the freezer to have on standby.

Big thumbs up for this one.
