Cheapest supermarkets for roast dinners – and Aldi wins on chicken

When it comes to Britain’s favourite meals there’s not much that beats a good Sunday roast – bar maybe a curry (and most of us have to order that in).

But, a full roast dinner can quickly become expensive if you’re going the whole hog and doing all the trimmings. And, with Christmas on its way it’s important to try and scrimp and save where we can so we don’t end up skint at the end of December.

So, which supermarket is the cheapest when it comes to buying everything for a Sunday roast? Well cashlady.com crunched some numbers and found out.

And, if you’re partial to a chicken dinner then Aldi is the place to head with a roast coming in at just £2.07 per portion.
