AUCKLAND, Today: After watching Manu Feildel judge NZ cooking contestants on our screens, the French chef from across the ditch has now teamed up with Ingham’s NZ to launch Dinner Done, including a range of delicious yet quick and easy recipes cooking with chicken, as well as a series of cooking tips and tricks.

Manu’s Ingham’s NZ Dinner Done collection includes seven recipes, ranging from those to help you cook like a chef at home, to recipes designed to get the kids involved – created by Manu with the help of his 8-year-old daughter Charlee. Manu’s Dinner Done recipes are available now at, with downloadable recipe cards and YouTube tutorials presented by Manu (and Charlee). Recipes include:

  1. Manu’s French-style Roasted Butterflied Chicken – cooking with Ingham’s whole chicken
  2. Manu’s Chicken Tray Bake with Corn Slaw – cooking with Ingham’s whole chicken
  3. Manu’s Tempura Breast Nugget Tacos with Corn & Avocado Salsa – cooking with Ingham’s Tempura Nuggets
  4. Manu’s Asian Cabbage Salad with Tenders & Dipping Sauces – cooking with Ingham’s Original Chicken Tenders
  5. Manu’s Original Chicken Tenderloins Tray Bake – cooking with Ingham’s Original Chicken Tenders
  6. Manu and Charlee’s Tempura Chicken Nugget Lettuce Cups – cooking with Ingham’s Tempura Nuggets
  7. Manu and Charlee’s Mexi-bean Loaded Chicken Chipees – cooking with Ingham’s Crumbed Chicken Chipees

“We’re thrilled to work with Manu to share these delicious recipes, as well as tips and tricks.”


Alongside the recipe collection, Manu provides a series of tips and tricks such as a video on ‘How to butterfly a chicken’, blogs on ‘How to cook the perfect roast chicken’, ‘Must-have dinner staples’ and more.

Launching Ingham’s NZ Dinner Done, Manu has shared his top three tips for planning and preparing midweek dinners to save time and make meals more fun:

  1. Stock up on and cook from frozen
  2. Create a ‘capsule’ pantry
  3. Get your household involved in planning, cooking, and plating!

In New Zealand, chicken leads as the preferred meat, with each person consuming approximately 37.5 kilograms annually. It represents 33% of all meals weekly, surpassing beef, fish, pork, lamb, and processed meats in popularity.

Chicken is the most sustainable land-meat choice too, and with all Ingham’s New Zealand chicken products farmed locally, and all Ingham’s New Zealand poultry farms being SPCA certified – meeting rigorous animal welfare standards, enjoying a chicken dinner can be good for us and our planet.

Ingham’s NZ Caroline Hayes, General Manager, said: “We’re thrilled to work with Manu to share these delicious recipes, as well as tips and tricks, to help people get Dinner Done. At Ingham’s we’re committed to being Always Good, and providing quick, easy and tasty meals is just one way we’re working to bring this to life.”
