Fruity Chicken with Apricots

Fruity Chicken with Apricots

Sweet and savoury all in one!

Babies like the combination of chicken and fruit. Dried apricots are one of nature's great health foods.  They are a good source of betacarotene, iron and potassium and the drying process increases their concentration.  They also make great finger foods.  This is good by itself or you can mix it with 4 tablespoons of cooked rice or pasta.

Suitable for the second stage of weaning - roughly 7-9 months

Makes 3 portions


2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 small onion, chopped (approx 50g)
1 small clove of garlic, crushed
75g chicken breast, cut into pieces
3 dried apricots, chopped
150mls passata (sieved tomatoes)
150ml chicken stock if home made (if not it is not suitable for children under 1 year old) so just use water

  1. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onion for about 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the chicken and saute for 2-3 minutes until sealed.
  4. Add the apricots, passata and stock or water (if store bought or under 1 year old).
  5. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.
