Aldi has come to the rescue once again – this time during KFC’s nationwide chicken shortage. The UK’s favourite supermarket has lip-smackingly good peri-peri chicken bowls and a finger lickingly good selection of fried chicken – up to four times cheaper than the Colonel’s favourite.
Shoppers can recreate KFC’s iconic fast food menu at home:
Popcorn chicken lovers can savour Aldi’s moreish Roosters Southern Fried Poppin’ Chicken – just 85p (210g), that’s less than a quarter of the price of KFC’s version (saving: £3.14).
Prefer a boneless feast? Aldi’s succulent Roosters Southern Fried Chicken Steaks in Breadcrumbs (£1.25, pack of 4) will get shoppers clucking, especially when they realise they can recreate a Fillet Burger Meal for less than £1 per person. Now that’s a bargain bucket! Just add Village Bakery Seeded Burger Buns (85p, pack of 6), Four Seasons Fries (65p, 1kg) and Vive Cola (39p, 2l).
For those that like to keep things spicy, Roosters Gastro Flamin’ Hot Chicken Thigh Burgers (£2.99, 2 pack) are spicy, tender and oh so delicious – sure to ruffle shoppers’ feathers!
For shoppers disappointed they can’t get a cheeky Nando’s, Aldi also has their chicken fixes covered with its fiery Peri-Peri Chicken Bowls. At just £2.69 for 380g, they are an incredible £13.21 (83%) cheaper than the much-loved restaurant chain.
Using succulent British chargrilled chicken marinated in a delicious garlic and chilli glaze, the mouth-watering butterfly chicken lies on a bed of spicy rice for a tastebud tingling flavour to savour. The blissful bowl is finished with a side of corn-on-the-cob, red cabbage and carrot slaw served with a spicy peri-peri sauce that lives up to the hype!
