Chicken and Veg Noodles

Suitable from 7 months

Ingredients 
1 tsp vegetable oil125g frozen or canned sweetcorn
1 chicken breast (125g) skinned and cut into thin strips1 medium head fresh broccoli (prepared weight approx. 150g), trimmed, cut into equal sized florets
1 small onion (prepared weight approx. 100g), peeled and finely chopped5 Tbsp single cream (90ml)
1 red pepper (prepared weight approx. 125g), deseeded and finely chopped5 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley
200g of tinned chopped tomatoes250g vermicelli (or other pasta) (some pastas contain egg)
300ml boiling water

Method:

  1. Put the oil, chicken and onion in a large pan and stir-fry for 5 minutes until the chicken is sealed. Add the pepper, put the lid on the pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes and water, bring to the boil and stir in the sweetcorn and broccoli. Cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes until the vegetables are softened. Stir in the cream and parsley and just warm through.
  3. Cool for a few minutes then put the mixture into a blender or food processor and pulse a couple of times to get a mashed consistency suitable for your baby.
  4. Meanwhile cook as much vermicelli as you need for serving the recipe fresh. It will only take 2-3 minutes. Cook 25g (1oz) to go with 190g (nearly 7oz) chicken and vegetable mixture for each serving for your baby. Drain well then snip into pieces with scissors and stir in to the sauce.
    Makes multiple servings. Just freeze the remaining food into portions appropriate for your baby. Can be kept in the freezer for a maximum of 1 month or 3 days in a covered bowl or plastic tub in the fridge.

NB Remember not to add salt to any of your baby's recipes. Please check ingredients carefully as some products may contain allergens that you are unaware of. For example, processed meats may contain milk proteins, and some vegetable oils and margarines can contain soya.
