I use this recipe as a bit of an inspiration dinner, It always gets me excited to cook the next meal. Its super easy, you can make it with any or every combination of ingredients, and it is a really good way to introduce sweetness with spices and herbs to your baby food. Just one saucepan does the job, try serving it with rice, cous cous or natural yoghurt.
Give it a go…
- 1 chicken breast/leg/thigh
- 1 cup chopped sweet potato/carrot/parsnip/squash…whatever
- 1 cup water
- 3-4 dried apricots/small handful raisins anything or everything
- few pinches of any combo of the following…cumin/corriander/cinnamon/mint
Dice the chicken into smallish pieces. Chop up the apricots or raisins. Chop up the veg small so it all cooks quickly.
Heat oil in a saucepan and add chicken. Cook for a few minutes until sealed.
Add the water, veg, fruit, spices, herbs…chuck it all in
Bring to the boil and then simmer on reduced heat for around 15-20 minutes or until apricots and veg are soft. There should only be a little bit of water left.
Mash, puree, or leave as it is.
