Celebrity chef develops TRUE-ly delicious summer recipe

Celebrity chef Nic Watt develops a TRUE-ly delicious summer recipe for My Food Bag customers

Nic Watt, chef restaurateur of TRUE Food Bistro and SKYCITY’s MASU by Nic Watt, has once again teamed up with My Food Bag, offering a chicken recipe for My Gourmet Bag customers.

The inspiration behind Nic’s Spiced Chicken recipe, adapted from a popular TRUE Food Bistro recipe, is the combination of a simple yet delicious chicken with the freshness of quinoa, hazelnuts and other seasonal ingredients.

“This dish is a top seller at TRUE Food Bistro; the balance of the chicken and the nutrients from the quinoa, cauliflower and raisins make it a real crowd pleaser and seriously delicious," says Nic.

Nic’s desire to use hazelnuts and quinoa was all down to the aroma these ingredients bring to a dish.

“They add an additional layer of flavour and texture profiling to the chicken”.

My Food Bag’s Gourmet Bag customers will receive all of the ingredients needed to recreate this recipe at home.

This recipe will be available at from today. For delivery by Monday 12 December, customers need to order by Monday 5 December.

About My Food Bag & Bargain Box

My Food Bag launched its home delivery service into New Zealand in 2013. Customers order online and receive food bags containing recipes for a week’s main dinner meals. The bags contain best in season, fresh ingredients that are locally sourced where possible.

In June 2016, My Food Bag expanded its offering with a new brand: Bargain Box. Super affordable Bargain Box cuts the frills to deliver great value ingredients and recipes while providing plenty of leftovers (or meals for unexpected guests).

All My Food Bag recipes are developed according to co-founder Nadia Lim’s Nude Food philosophy of ignoring the hype, trusting your instincts and eating real food.

The My Food Bag and Bargain Box business is the brainchild of entrepreneur Cecilia Robinson, founder and co-CEO alongside her husband James Robinson. Prominent New Zealand businesswoman Theresa Gattung is also involved in the business as an active shareholder, co-founder and director. Business leader Kevin Roberts is chairman of the My Food Bag board.

In October 2016 My Food Bag announced it had successfully secured investment from Waterman Capital. This partnership will support My Food Bag in achieving its ambition to IPO within the next three years to raise further capital and enable Kiwisavers and other New Zealanders to invest alongside the founders and Waterman Capital.

My Food Bag is available throughout New Zealand. Visit or for more information.
