Prosecco may be the ultimate way to celebrate the festive season, but instead of sipping on bubbles whilst enjoying a Christmas roast, would you try enjoying your favourite fizz as part of the meal itself instead?
While there are many ways to pimp your prosecco for Christmas this year, how about pimping up your roast with it instead? Far from a wild idea dreamt up by prosecco lovers and foodies alike, a prosecco infused roast is now a reality, thanks to supermarket chain Aldi.
From the same store that bought us the hugely popular gin mince pies in the form of Sloe Gin Mince Tarts earlier this month, the discount supermarket have announced the launch of a Specially Selected Prosecco Infused British Chicken, which will be available in their stores from this week.
So, how does it work? Well, the whole British chicken is actually basted with a prosecco marinade to add that distinctive fizz flavour, and then the bird is topped with a wine and mushroom seasoning, as well as being finished with a sparkling edible gold shimmer – just to make it well and truly festive.
Julie Ashfield, Joint Managing Director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, describes the supermarkets latest creation as ‘fun and festive.’
‘Aldi is never one to miss a trend which is why we created the Specially Selected Prosecco Infused British Chicken with Gold Shimmer’ she said.
The Specially Selected Prosecco Infused British Chicken is available in Aldi from Thursday 14th December for £4.99 – but as with all Specialbuys once it’s gone, it’s gone – so you better hurry!
