During the warmer months, it’s out with heavy wintry dishes and in with refreshing light bites. Chicken is the second top food trend[1] and a firm favourite meat choice, particularly during the summer.

Big Al’s Chicken Fillets – bar marked and made with 100% full cooked chicken breast meat – are an extremely versatile product and can help operators offer healthy, light options, that are high in protein and low in fat. Big Al’s Chicken Fillets can also be used to create popular dishes – with many consumers becoming increasingly health conscious, better-for-you options are vital to any menu. Big Al’s Chicken Fillets are perfect to include in salads or wraps and seeing a rise in popularity of chicken burgers, they provide the ideal base for creating delicious burger builds.

Big Al’s poultry range also includes mesquite chicken wings. Ideal for sharing platters, as a snack or side order, insight shows that chicken wings are one of the most popular items on a sharing menu and reports show they are the No.1 poultry item on pub menus[2]. Big Al’s fully flame cooked Chicken Wings cook from frozen in minutes and are extremely versatile, ideal to be served with a variety of sauces and exciting flavours.
