Classic Australian Chicken, a very "Aussie" ad, and the current Red Rooster - the little lioness

Classic Australian Chicken, a very “Aussie” ad, and the current Red Rooster

Now, you can have Red Red Reddy Red Rooster in your head. Please inflict this image of 1980s Aussies eating chicken with pride on your family and friends.

Red  Rooster chicken

As a part of a Social Soup promotion, I received a $35 voucher to spend at Red Rooster.

We bought one of the new Chicken Caesar roll meals, and two roast chickens for later. The Caesar roll was nice, shame they didn’t have the fancy rolls available. The chips were the same as ever, fresh hot, salty and appreciated by the seagulls when we were full :p

Though the size of the diet coke bottles for a “medium” meal at now only 390mL – I remember when small meals got 375mL cans… I wonder what they get now?

With the roast chickens, we made

and used some of the chicken for kebabs with all the trimmings – cheese, tabouli, sour cream and salads.

I find the woolies chooks are a touch bigger, but the taste was similar, the chicken was very moist the first day, and good still after a day in the fridge. The Red Rooster chooks are “barn raised” and $12.95 each.

Now to finish the meal with another classic…

What’s your favourite classic ad?
