KATSU curry and kievs are some of our dinner favourites, and soon you can get a combination of the two in Aldi.
The discounter is launching a chicken katsu kiev this Thursday, and packs of two will set you back £1.59.
Aldi Aldi shoppers can pick up a chicken katsu kiev from this Thursday
Inspired by the Japanese curry dish, the kiev contains 100 per cent British chicken and a katsu curry sauce, and it comes in a breadcrumb coating.
The new dinner alternative will hit Aldi store shelves across the country on March 7. You can find your local Aldi store by using its store locator.
The Sun has asked the supermarket whether they’ll become available online too, how much each kiev weighs as well as the calorie count per treat, but we haven’t yet heard back.
The new meal is part of Aldi’s Specialbuys, meaning they’re only available as long as stocks last so you’ll need to be quick if you don’t want to risk missing out.
It is the only so-called chicken katsu kiev currently available in the major supermarkets in the UK, although Asda and Tesco are both selling a similar product with chicken breasts, a katsu kurry filling and breadcrumbs.
These treats from Birds Eye cost £2 and £2.25 respectively for a pack of two weighing a total of 204g.
