Australia-based French chef Manu Feildel has teamed up with Ingham’s NZ to launch the poultry producer’s Dinner Done campaign.

The campaign includes a range of quick and easy recipes cooking with chicken, as well as a series of cooking tips and tricks.

Feildel’s Dinner Done collection includes a series of seven recipes, ranging from those to help you cool like a chef at home, to recipes designed to get the kids involved.

The recipes are available now at inghams.co.nz/whatsnew with downloadable recipe cards and YouTube tutorials presented by Feildel and his 8-year-old daughter Charlee. Recipes include:

  1. French-style Roasted Butterflied Chicken
  2. Chicken Tray Bake with Corn Slaw
  3. Tempura Breast Nugget Tacos with Corn & Avocado Salsa
  4. Asian Cabbage Salad with Tenders & Dipping Sauces
  5. Original Chicken Tenderloins Tray Bake
  6. Tempura Chicken Nugget Lettuce Cups
  7. Mexi-bean Loaded Chicken Chipees

“We all have busy days, and after a long day – like everyone – I just want Dinner Done,” says Feildel. “Chicken is an incredibly versatile protein, is quick to cook and can be used in a huge range of recipes and cuisines.”

“As a father of two wonderful kids, getting a tasty dinner on the table that everyone will eat is a top priority – particularly midweek – and that’s why I’m excited to launch Ingham’s NZ Dinner Done,” he says.

Ingham’s NZ general manager Caroline Hayes says the company is ‘thrilled’ to work with Feildel and share the recipes and tips and tricks.

“At Ingham’s we’re committed to Always Good, and providing quick, easy and tasty meals is just one way we’re working to bring this to life,” Hayes says.

Tips and Tricks for Cooking Chicken

Alongside the recipe collection, Feildel 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 the Dinner Done campaign, he 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 – frozen is just as good as fresh, stock your freezer with quick, versatile options to avoid the supermarket run!
  2. Create a ‘capsule’ pantry – stock your pantry and fridge with staples made up of a limited number of versatile ingredients based on the foods your household enjoys eating, and which can be combined into a variety of meals.
  3. Get your household involved in planning, cooking and plating! - Planning and preparing meals solo can feel like hard work. Get the household involved by inviting everyone to choose a cuisine or simple meal for the week. Turn on and up your favourite music, follow a YouTube cooking tutorial to make it a home cooking class, or try some food art!
