What’s not to love about tasty chicken paired with plump sultanas, juicy apricots and fluffy rice? For babies who have moved beyond all things smooth, give this tasty recipe a try!

Of course, for babies who are still dabbling in the less is more texture category, give it a quick blitz with a stick blender so they too can join in on the taste sensation.

Ingredients

1 tsp olive oil
¼ small onion, diced
2 dried apricots, diced
1 tbs chicken breast or thigh, cooked or raw
1 small plum tomato, seeded and diced
2 tsp sultanas
¼ tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
pinch of ground coriander
pinch of cinnamon
¼ tsp finely chopped garlic
90ml water
1 tbs basmati rice

Method

  • Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and fry for around two minutes or until soft.

  • Mix in the apricot, chicken, tomato and sultanas.

  • Add the herbs, spices, garlic and water. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  • Meanwhile in a separate pan, cook the rice according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.

  • Stir in  half the cooked rice to the chicken mix. Reserve the other half.

  • Mash the chicken mixture, then add the reserved rice and mix well. Add extra water if a thinner consistency is preferred.
