Christmas is coming, but there is such a thing as too much turkey. But of course, you can never have too much of Nando’s chicken, grilled to perfection and marinated in spicy sauce.
This December, you can enjoy a festive and banterful meal among friends at your local Nando’s, where the brand new PERi-PERi Chicken Gravy is about to launch itself all over your chips.
Think Nando’s chips can’t be improved on? That PERi-PERi salt and sauce is the pinnacle of Nando’s perfection? Think again my friend…
Now, anyone who’s ever sampled delights of a school dinner will know how chips and gravy are one of life’s perfect combinations, able to brighten up the most miserable of Double Maths Mondays.
And this gravy in particular looks especially delicious. Costing £1.25 for a jug, this is the perfect, warming condiment to pour all over your chips. Or directly down your throat if you’d prefer?
According to a press release from Nando’s:
Nando’s has answered the prayers of fans across the UK this festive season, and is delivering the gift of PERi-PERi Chicken Gravy – the only thing needed to add a bit of Christmas cheer to your usual Nando’s order.
Just in time for Christmas, and for a limited time only, the eagerly anticipated addition of Nando’s new, hot and tasty PERi-PERi Chicken Gravy will sit at the heart of its 2018 Christmas menu… because it is the 2018 Christmas menu.
Nando’s take on a British classic, PERi-PERi Chicken Gravy is rich and warming, with fiery, herby notes – perfect for cold winter days and nights, in the build-up to Jolly Old St. Nicholas.
No other festive dishes have been planned, but with this limited addition on your plate, it really is all gravy!
Nando’s gravy is beautiful 😍🐔

For years, Nando’s regulars have longed for the Portuguese-style chicken restaurant to release their own take on gravy, knowing the world is difficult enough without a dry chip.
And this news has proved to be something of a Christmas miracle.
One chicken chomper tweeted:
Nando’s bringing out gravy has to be the best news of 2018.
While another simply gasped:
ABSOLUTELY YES. [sic]
