Tired of the same lunch everyday? Does everything seem bland, too salty, overcooked, undercooked, dried up, mushy, rubbery or just plain old boring that you'd rather skip meals and just drown a mug or two of coffee? Fret no more! You'll never starve yourself again with Figaro's newest offering, Spoon Meals by Figaro.
Chicken Ala King
PHP 215.00 or USD 4.95
"Diced marinated chicken in special creamy sauce with vegetables served with buttered corn and carrots, steamed rice and your choice of iced or brewed coffee or iced tea. The dish common to all Filipinos served with bread is actually perfect with rice.

The creamy diced chicken with crisp buttered corn and carrots with steamed rice will set you off to a bright start of the day. You deserve the meal fit for a King because Figaro knows you crave for the Chicken Ala King at parties and business meetings. There's no need to feel guilty over this classic creamy combination of chicken, peppers and mushrooms because you deserve the spoon meal to accomplish those tasks of the day.

No need for a knife and have it your way with a spoonful of Chicken Thyme with Creamy Cheese Sauce or Chicken Ala King in bite sizes because you deserve the royal treatment at Figaro."
Chicken Thyme With Creamy Cheese Sauce
PHP 215.00 or USD 4.95
"Deep fried coated chicken fillet poured with creamy cheese sauce. Served with buttered corn and carrots as side dish and steamed rice, it comes with your choice of beverage, iced or brewed coffee or iced tea. Thyme, believed by the ancient Greeks to be a source of courage is also a good source of iron. Though flavorful, thyme does not overpower the taste of chicken. The creamy cheese sauce allows you to savor the crunchy deep-fried chicken with thyme perfect to nourish your body and your metabolism throughout the day. The bursts of flavors from the buttered corn and carrots with the chicken thyme will fill you right after that business meeting or before it at your favorite Figaro Coffee Company."
Comparing the two dishes, I prefer the Chicken Ala King. It was creamy and just needs a little of spice to add a bit of spunk, but it's nothing that a little sprinkling of pepper cannot fix. The Chicken Thyme had a nice, subtle crisp coating and is complemented well by the mild cheese sauce but I would've enjoyed it better with some soup. Each Spoon Meal can be paired with your favorite iced coffee, brewed coffee or iced tea for those hot sunny days.
