Manu Feildel & daughter Charlee cook-off to get Dinner Done.

Charlee and Manu cook Mexi-Bean Loaded Chicken Chipees and Tempura Chicken Nugget Lettuce Cups

8-year-old Charlee Feildel has joined dad Manu in the on-screen kitchen to create two recipes cooking with chicken as part of Ingham’s Dinner Done.

Charlee took to the camera with confidence and ease, helping Manu to cook Mexi-Bean Loaded Chicken Chippees and Tempura Chicken Nugget Lettuce Cups.

How Mexi-Bean Loaded Chicken Chipees came to be…

At first, Charlee wants to go out for dinner to have loaded fries. Manu, comfortable in his slippers, is not so keen, and suggests Mexi-Bean Chicken Chipees instead.

Showing her cheeky personality, Charlee challenges Manu: “Papa, I always see you judging people on TV. So, because I really want those loaded fries, tonight I’ll be judging you. No pressure.”

Together Charlee and Manu cook the chicken chipees in the oven, mash the guacamole, cook the corn, and layer the cooked chipees with olives, corn kernals, salsa and cheese – returning it all to the oven to melt. After presenting the loaded chipees with guacamole, halved cherry tomatoes, sour cream, and coriander it’s time to taste.

And the final score Charlee gives her celebrity chef dad? “Presentation, good. Smell, good. Taste, good.”

Tempura Chicken Nugget Lettuce Cups – created as a twist on San Choy Bao.

“I’ve been a kid for over eight years, and its time for us to change things around here,” announces Charlee. “I love Mumma’s San Choy Bao, but what if we use chicken nuggets?”

Manu agrees, “That’s a great idea. What about lettuce cups, vermicelli noodles, some salad vegetables, chicken nuggets and a dressing over the top?”

Manu shows Charlee how easy it is to use an air-fryer, and Charlee shows Manu how to really shake the dressing.

On the couch, Manu and Charlee reveal what this father-daughter duo is all about.

Charlee: “I really like spending time with my dad and making dinner with him.”

Manu: “It’s always fun to be working with my daughter. She seems to understand the gig for some reason.”

When asked who the better cook is, Charlee doesn’t miss a beat: “He’s pretty good, but I think I’m a bit better.”
