Easy One Pot Chicken (6-9 Month Baby)

Nuvita Biscuits

Chicken is an ideal first meat for babies. It blends well with root vegetables like carrot and sweet potato. One Pot Chicken would  make a good first chicken puree. You can leave out the peas and if you like you could add a small chopped apple with the carrot and sweet potato. Chicken blends well with fruits and babies like the naturally sweet flavour that fruit. Frozen vegetables are frozen within hours of being picked thus locking in all the nutrients so its fine to use ingredients like frozen peas when making your baby’s puree. For older babies you can finely chop rather than puree this and mix it with some cooked rice.


1 tbsp sunflower oil
50g chopped onion
100g chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced (approx 60g)
300g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
200 ml unsalted chicken stock
60g frozen peas


Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the onion for 3 to 4 minutes until softened.

Add the chicken breast and sauté for about 3 minutes.

Add the carrot and sweet potato, pour over the stock, bring to the boil and simmer, covered for about 15  minutes.

Add the peas and continue to cook for 3 minutes.

Puree in a blender with enough of the cooking liquid to make the desired consistency.

    Last year I made sweet potato pie and it had large orange chunks in it. I need to know how to peel them so that it doesn’t happen again.

    With the holidays coming I of course am going to be making my sweet potato pies and yams but I always though they were the same thing because I use a sweet potato to make yams. Anyone know what the difference is?

    Can you give me pictures or links differentiating the one from the other
    and give the characteristic features of each…
    please do not include that a sweet potato is a tendril and a potato tuber is a tuber
    other than this, can you suggest any?
    What I really need are the photos…^^
    Both of them have modified roots and stem
    Potato tuber-storage root; tuber which is a modified stem
    Sweet potato – storage root; tendrils or twining shoot which is a modified stem

    How on earth do you cut a sweet potato? I was trying to cut wedges to make sweet potato fries and it wouldn’t cut at all. It was too hard. I ended up breaking it in pieces and throwing it out…
