The Aldi Red Bag Chicken is so incredibly popular that it has its very own Facebook group!

7 Ways to Use Aldi Red Bag Chicken


We are going to talk about 7 great recipes to use this tasty treat and why you absolutely need to try it!

What is Aldi’s red bag chicken?

Retailing at $5.99, the breaded chicken breast with rib meat comes in a red, 24-ounce bag. With no added hormones or steroids, this high-quality and well-seasoned cutlet is often sold out.

Is Aldi red bag chicken fully cooked?

Yes. It is but since this is a frozen product, it will take quite some time to be ready enough to eat.

How do you cook red bag chicken?

You need to follow the package instructions, and bake the fillets for 35 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, turning them over at the 20-minute mark. I know a lot of people in the Facebook group talk about using their air fryer to cook the chicken but there is only one instruction on the bag for a reason: it works.

We are going to talk about 7 great recipes to use this tasty treat and why you absolutely need to try it!

1) Mock Chick-Fil-A Sandwich.

This is totally the reason I ever bought a bag to try it. Beyond simple to make, it is worth the hassle and a fraction of the price of your local drive-through. Bake the chicken exactly the way the package tells you to.

Take an Aldi Brioche bun, spread mayo on it, and add both the chicken with pickle slices. While this is a total Chick-Fil-A fake-out, some people prefer to use homemade Chick-Fil-A sauce over the mayo.

Homemade Chick-Fil-A sauce is pretty easy to make and actually, is mayo-based. Adding just 3 other ingredients and you end up with a savory sauce that pairs beyond well with the RBC for a sandwich.

What do you need for Chick-Fil-A Sauce?

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon BBQ sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon honey

That’s it – just toss those items together in a small bowl and mix them well.

2) Asian RBC Wrap

Cook your Aldi Red Bag Chicken in the oven, like the package instructs. Chop it up and toss with the Aldi Asian salad mix, peanuts, and homemade peanut sauce. Use a tortilla to create a wrap and you are all set!

You could do a chicken Ceasar wrap – or even a wrap using feta, craisins, and a sweet vinegarette. You are only limited by your imagination!

The next time you eat out – look at the entree salads on the menu. ANY of them can easily be turned into a wrap!

3) Chicken Parmesan

Cook the RBC as the package suggests, adding a slice of mozzarella five minutes before the chicken is done. While the chicken is baking, boil your spaghetti. Plate your spaghetti with red pasta sauce, then top with a cheesy-covered piece of RBC.

4) Pita RBC Pizza!

Get your Pita bread for this one. Carmelize some red onion slices, slather flatbread with bbq sauce, top with the onions, cooked and sliced RBC,  and shredded cheddar cheese. Cook in a 350 oven for 15 minutes, until the cheese has nicely melted.

5) Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich

Get out those Aldi Brioche buns, and lather it with both Mayo and dijon mustard. Add a piece of that oven-baked RBC and then top it with some sliced ham, and a slice of Swiss cheese. Delish!

6) Fake Out KFC Chicken Bowls.

Bake off your RBC as instructed. Slice it into strips. Take a bowl and layer in it some cooked frozen corn, that sliced RBC, shredded cheddar cheese, country gravy, and mashed potatoes. If you want, you can set it up almost buffet style and everybody gets a bowl, an RBC filet, and then they can add what they like!

7) Flatbread Chicken and Bacon Pizza.

Cook that RBC as they suggest. For the crust on this, you will want the Artisan Style Flatbread. It sells for 2.99 and is a 2-pack in the bread section.  Lather on the Simply Nature Organic Tomato Basil sauce. Sprinkle on fully-cooked bacon bits from about 3 strips of cooked-off bacon and top it with 2 to 3 slices of fresh mozzarella.

Take one cooked piece of RBC and dice it up. Sprinkle it over the sliced cheese. Top it with about a cup or so of shredded mozzarella, as desired. Spice it up with a little salt, pepper, and basil.
Place in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

Aldi Chicken and Waffles

Bonus: Chicken and Waffles!

Chicken and Waffles crack me up – my very “northern” husband simply didn’t “get” the concept. It is pretty simple. Chicken on a waffle, covered with syrup. The sweet syrup balances the salty tang of the breaded chicken. Yes, it is carb overload, but it is sooooo good!

This is a beyond simple meal! You can either use your own waffle recipe or grab a frozen box of toaster waffles. Cook your RBC and place it on top of a waffle. Drench it in your favorite maple syrup and rip into it like a monkey on a cupcake.
