With access to more indulgent, calorific foods becoming a little more sparse, Britons have been trying to find ways to replicate their favourite takeaway foods at home. Some restaurants have been reopening doors to hungry customers for takeaway and delivery and KFC revealed it is planning to open 80 branches for delivery just weeks after shutting its stores during the pandemic.
McDonald’s announced this week it has told its staff to prepare to reopen as PPE and social distancing tests start this week.
Nando’s fans have also been delighted after the South African chain reopened restaurants for delivery.
Greggs has also begun to prepare for the reopening of some shops.
But if you can’t wait much longer, KFC lovers can now make their own Chicken Zinger burger at home with thanks to Aldi.

The supermarket has created a combination of its products which replicate the famous dish at home.
You will need:
- Mayonnaise (69p, 500ml).
- Specially Selected Sesame Seeded Brioche Burger Bun (£0.89, pack of 4).
- Flamin’ Breaded Chicken Thigh Burger (£2.99, pack of 2).
- Romaine Lettuce.
Enjoy with salted fries and a glass of coke for the full experience.
Of course, similar ingredients can also be bought at other supermarkets and food stores.
The UK’s largest fast food chicken chain has gradually re-opened 20 of its restaurants over the past couple of weeks in order to offer a pared-back menu.
The American-owned company said in a statement that it was taking the major step “responsibly and carefully, with stringent processes and hygiene measures put in place.
“All our restaurants will continue serving a limited menu to help the smaller kitchen teams maintain social distancing.”

Paula MacKenzie, managing director of KFC UK & Ireland, said: “I’m really proud of the way we, with our franchise partners, have been able to carefully get some of our restaurants up and running over the last two weeks.
“This next stage allows us to continue to provide wider access to hot food for those who need it most, whether that’s key workers after a long shift or those working from home who need a quick, affordable dinner for the family.
KFC has more than 900 branches in the UK and employs around 24,000 people.
“I’m hugely appreciative of our team members who have returned to work – it’s a challenging time for everyone, but we’re so glad to play our part in helping to feed the nation.”
The reopening of food stores and restaurants has caused controversy and anger, with people confused about what constitutes an essential journey.
Confusion was seen on Twitter, with one user tweeting: “So I can get a sausage roll but not see my loved ones?”
Restaurants have insisted they will be implementing social distancing measures and ensuring the safety of staff and the public.
