Aldi appear to be doing their own version of Nandos marinades/sauces for 85p. They had a few but I got the mango & lime and the lemon & herb, the others I've forgotten

I haven't seen these before today and haven't tried it yet so I can't compare them, but I know people seem to like the Nandos sauces and thought it was worth posting.

These are nice (they also do Hot) but it's the standard price.
Good to see mango and lime as an option here as a lot of shops don't even stock the Nando's version.
These are ok but have more of a vinegar taste compared to Nando’s version. Seem to work good as a marinade though.

Nando's standard restaurant medium peri peri marinade (as per their nutritional guide) lists water and spirit vinegar as the second ingredient. The basting liquid (eg the liquid the chicken bastes in before being cooked, as well as inside their hot drawer before they finish it off on the grill) is around 1/3 vinegar. Vinegar tends to cook off at high heat so it's possible the Aldi one is closer to the genuine store sauce, and that the supermarket one is adjusted for the more moderate cooking style of a home oven. Certainly the ingredients for the supermarket product is not the same as in the restaurant's nutritional guide.

For anyone interested, the official ingredients for the basting liquid in restaurants is:

Water
Rapeseed oil
Spirit vinegar
Green chilli
Spice mix (red chill pepper, African bird eye chilli, paprika)
Herb (bay leaf)
Lemon
Onion
Garlic purée

If you make this yourself with a blender (it's pretty easy) you can cook your chicken in quarters in this liquid at a moderate temperature then take it out to the BBQ to finish it off with a marinade. That's the best way to get somewhere towards an authentic taste. Nando's chicken actually comes to the restaurant pre-marinaded in this sauce, with the required flavour added once the chicken is being seared on the grill.
