Aldi embraces Christmas with prosecco-infused chicken

In honour of the most magical time of the year, discounter Aldi has introduced a new boozy chicken to its shelves. 

The Specially Selected Prosecco Infused British Chicken was launched yesterday, 14 December, and is available for £4.99. 

The whole British chicken is basted with a Prosecco marinade and topped with a wine and mushroom seasoning before being finished with sparkling edible gold. 

The discounter’s new chicken is cooked in a bag, locking in all the juices and flavours. 

“Aldi is never one to miss a trend, which is why we created the Specially Selected Prosecco Infused British Chicken with Gold Shimmer,” said Julie Ashfield, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi UK.

“This fun and festive product is another example of amazing quality at Aldi’s everyday low prices.”

The festive chicken is the latest Christmas-inspired products from Aldi, following on from Specially Selected Outdoor Bred British Pork Cocktail Sausages with Prosecco, Cranberry and Orange, Specially Selected Exquisite Prosecco and Peach Panettone and Specially Selected Honeycomb with Prosecco Sugar.
