Results:

Coming in at 1st place for the best value for money is Lidl at £6.29! This low-price option includes an extra-large chicken as well as a veg box. It should be noted that veg boxes can have different contents and are subject to availability. The price also doesn’t include gravy because we couldn’t find this online.

In 2nd place is Aldi at £6.97! If you don’t want the risk of not having cauliflower for your Easter Day feast this is a good option instead of the Lidl veg box. And with the leftover cash, you could buy some mini eggs and host an egg hunt for your kids.

Coming in at 3rd and 4th are Asda (8.93) and Sainsbury’s (£8.98) whilst their vegetables and extras are around the same price as Aldi and Lidl, it is the price of the chickens that make them more expensive.

In 5th place with the most expensive but still comes in under £10 is Morrisons. With more expensive veg and chicken, it topped the charts but is still coming in at a respectable £9.02. If shopping in-store you could knock the price down by picking loose vegetables rather than packaged.

Our top choices for an easter lunch for 6 for under for £10 are Aldi and Lidl.

Money-saving tips:

  1. Check your cupboards – before you head off to the shops do a sweep of your cupboard, you might already have some gravy granules in there.
  2. Frozen mixed veg can be even cheaper than fresh if you’re tight on cash, consider swapping to save a few extra pennies.
  3. Consider shopping the yellow stickers – if you’re willing to leave your easter shopping until a little later on Saturday, you might be able to get some yellow sticker discounts!
