When to Introduce: 9+ months (always check with pediatrician)

Ingredients:

1/4 lb (~1/2 Cup) of Boneless Skinless Dark Meat Chicken (diced)

5 oz (~1 Cup) of Red Bell Peppers (cored and chopped)

12 oz (~2 3/4 Cups) of White Sweet Potato (peeled and chopped)

6 Medium Basil Leaves

1 1/4 Cups of Vegetable Broth

1 Tbsp of Olive Oil

Directions: 

  1. Heat olive oil in medium pot or saucepan over medium heat
  2. Add chicken and brown for 2 minutes
  3. Add pepper and sweet potato and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently
  4. Add broth and basil, raise heat and bring to a boil
  5. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until sweet potatoes can easily be mashed with a fork (approximately 8 – 10 minutes)
  6. Remove from heat, transfer to a blender or food processor and puree to your desired consistency. You may always add more broth as needed.

Vegetable broth is easy to make and can be made with left-over vegetables or vegetable scraps. I suggest finding a well-rated veggie broth recipe or use a family favorite. You can make a big batch and store it in the freezer or in the fridge for the week. Using broth in baby food recipes adds flavor and nutrients; however, you may always use water instead for convenience.

 

Stars: This is a yummy summer meal for your baby! Red peppers are loaded with Vitamin C. Since Vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron, you can be sure your little one is getting the most out of the iron in the chicken. Pure goodness!
