Australian supermarket giant Woolworths has unveiled a new range of ‘garlic bread’ flavoured roast chicken in the deli section.
The $11.50 chook comes complete with a garlic bread stuffing – and it’s ‘larger’ than the classic variety.
Offering a convenient dinner solution, shoppers can get their hands on the hot roast chicken in stores from Wednesday, July 22.
‘Our team of food innovator chefs have worked tirelessly over the last few months to combine some meal favourites to create new flavours for the dinner table, including pairing our popular chicken roast with garlic bread seasoning,’ Woolworths director of Fresh Food, Paul Harker said.
The new roast chicken is among the new ready-to-eat roast meats range, which includes a variety of flavours such as roast pork loin with crackling ($22), beef brisket with BBQ sauce ($17), and boneless chicken roast with pumpkin stuffing ($14).
‘With the middle of winter now upon us, families are looking for new inspiration when it comes to creating hearty, convenient and affordable meals that don’t compromise on taste or freshness,’ Mr Harker said.
‘With no preparation time and minimal clean-up required, the new range of convenient, ready-to-eat roast meats are perfect for a mid-week meal that feeds the whole family, or as a winter-warming centrepiece for your Sunday roast.’
There’s also a new sourdough bread range made using a traditional 40-hour recipe.
The making of the bread begins with a traditional culture, which is slowly fermented and then hand shaped and rested before being baked on stone. They are finished by the Woolworths bakery team in store ovens.
The sourdough range includes white Loaf, olive loaf, dark rye and grains and sprouts miche loaf, all priced at $7 each.
‘With Australians spending more time at home than ever before, we have seen a huge increase in customers baking their own bread,’ Mr Harker said.
‘However, the bread-making process can be time-consuming for many, so we’ve done the hard work for customers with our new range, bringing fresh and expertly crafted bread for them to enjoy.’
