Applegreen challenges comedy duo ‘The 2 Johnnies’ to design new limited-edition 100% Irish chicken fillet roll

Posted on: 10 May 2021

  • Famous for their love of chicken fillet rolls, The 2 Johnnies have the chance to devise their own ‘signature roll’ for sale in Applegreen stores nationwide
  • The limited-edition roll designed by the pair contains chicken fillet, cheese, lettuce and mayo on a freshly baked roll, for a special price of €4
  • All chicken fillets served in Applegreen stores are made from 100% Irish chicken


 Self-declared chicken fillet roll fanatics ‘The 2 Johnnies’ have collaborated with Applegreen to create a new limited-edition version of the deli counter favourite.


The specially selected roll devised by The 2 Johnnies is a nod to the classic recipe with a fresh twist. Customers can look forward to a mouth-watering combination of Applegreen’s 100% Irish chicken fillet on a signature roll accompanied by cheese, mayonnaise and lettuce. 


The partnership has derived from The 2 Johnnies’ deep-rooted passion for chicken fillet rolls. The pair regularly discuss their favourite rolls and recipes on their popular podcast, as well as their chief bugbear – over-priced chicken rolls! Applegreen will ensure the lads will have no complaints on that score, with The 2 Johnnies signature chicken fillet roll on sale for €4 for the next fortnight, starting today.


Speaking at today’s announcement, The 2 Johnnies commented: “It’s no secret that we are major fans of chicken fillet rolls! It sort of developed out of a mutual appreciation and then our followers seemed to share the same passion. It wasn’t long before the price of chicken rolls became a regular discussion point on our podcast. 


“Our followers have reported some seriously outrageous pricing when it comes to chicken fillet rolls so we are starting a campaign to ‘save our chicken fillet roll’ by insisting they are priced at €4 or less,” the funnymen added. “We’re delighted that Applegreen have answered our call and are offering our very own speciality roll for just €4 for a limited period!”


Applegreen Marketing Manager, Rebecca Duffy, remarked: “We had so much fun letting The 2 Johnnies run wild behind our deli counter as they came up with their signature Applegreen chicken fillet roll. Just as our chicken is 100% Irish, we are 100% sure our customers will love the 2 Johnnies chicken fillet roll, on sale for a limited time only at the special price of €4 at The Bakewell in Applegreen stores nationwide.”


Applegreen has been selling the popular hot chicken rolls at their Bakewell counter for more than 20 years. The distinctively Irish brand serves only 100% Irish quality ingredients in all its chicken rolls, supporting Irish food producers and suppliers around the country.


“We strive to always meet the highest standard by using only the best quality, Irish-sourced ingredients in our famous chicken fillet rolls. Applegreen is a proudly Irish brand and we are committed to supporting Irish food producers and suppliers for our award-winning range of food”, added Rebecca.
