Make homemade chicken baby food

17 Sep

If you have ever opened a jar of commercial chicken meat baby food, you likely had the same reaction as many parents – ICK! Making your own homemade chicken baby food (puree or not) is as simple as baking some chicken, cooling it off and then whizzing it up! 1 baked chicken thigh and 1 baked (bone in) split chicken breast. After baking, take the meat off the bones (if there are any bones). The meat pieces you see here are from the thigh hence why the pink-ish color.Toss the pieces in the blender/food processor (mine is a Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus) and whizz until you have small, powdery type bits.

The chicken should look like this:

  • Now slice up a fresh peach and toss it into the blender and process for about 1 minute
  • Behold the chunky peachy chicken finger food meal
  • Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water (or broth or apple juice) and puree some more for younger babies.
  • Peachy Chicken Baby Puree
  • Ingredients
  • Chicken Pieces (I used 2 split breasts and 2 thighs – I made chicken stew later)
  • Peaches
  • Water or Broth or Juice
  • Spices & Herbs as desire

Directions

  1.   Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2.   Lightly spread olive oil on a baking sheet
  3.   Add chicken to baking sheet and sprinkle on herbs & spices
  4.   Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until breast has split and juices run clear
  5.   Allow chicken to cool then cut into chunks, puree or chop as desired
  6.   and add the peaches and water as desired. Heat and serve.
  7.   Freezes for up to 3 months – may be a bit gritty when thawed
