The chunky nuggets are made with 100% chicken breast and can be baked or fried.
Priced at just £9.99 for 2kg (approximately 90 pieces) fish and chip shops can make a generous margin by offering them as an ‘add on’ dish or side.
“Offering six chicken bites for £1.50 offers caterers a profit margin of more than 100%” said Group General Manager of JJ Foodservice, Terry Larkin.
“Rising fish prices is making it more important for fish and chip shops to look at additional menu items that can help to increase overall margin”, he added.
As an alternative to a side, the spicy snacks can also be served baked with a salad or wrap as a lower calorie option.
To help shops to promote the new Spicy Bites, JJ Foodservice will be offering a free promotional poster with every purchase from March.
