Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place rice into TM bowl and mill for 15 seconds/speed 10.

    Set aside. (If you have an older baby, don't mill as much)


    2. Place onion into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds/speed 5. Scrape down bowl.


    3. Add olive oil and saute for 3 minutes/100 degrees/speed 1 MC off.


    4. Add chicken and pumpkin to TM bowl and saute for 5 minutes/100 degrees/speed 1, MC off.


    5. Add ground rice, water and apricots and cook for 15 minutes/100 degrees/speed 1.


    6. Blend for 10 seconds/speed 8.


Many recipes for apricot chicken contain french onion soup (which often has a lot of salt) and apricot nector (which contains added sugar). This is a more pure recipe, suitable for babies.


This makes a large portion so you can freeze the rest in small portions in Glad Freezer Bags or similar.

Baby Apricot Chicken (no french onion soup, no apricot nector)

    Thanks for this healthy apricot chicken recipe! I was a bit worried it wouldn't taste like apricot with all the pumpkin that's in there but the flavour comes through well. My 10 month old has gobbled it up, with a few sneaky spoonfuls for me too! It has also frozen well  tmrc_emoticons.)
