Chicken is often a firm favourite with babies, and this recipe blends well with the soft consistency of familiar root vegetables. As you know whenever I can I love to cook meat on the bone to extract as much nutrition as possible, especially in a dairy free house. You can however use any cut of meat including chicken breast and shorten the cooking time to 20 minutes on the stove. This recipe is truly versatile so don’t feel you have to follow this to the letter.
If you have your own homemade chicken broth I skim off the fat from the top of the jar and use that to brown the meat, but feel free to use ghee or your oil of choice. The ingredients in this recipe are low to moderate in salicylates and parsley is the least likely herb to cause a reaction but is such a nutritious powerhouse. Where I can I love to add fresh parsley as it’s rich in antioxidants and enhances digestive health (it’s an effective treatment for constipation).
In case you need it, here’s my recipe for chicken bone broth that I make for the family. Just note if you use this recipe for your baby, just omit the salt and add later in cooking for the rest of the family’s meals.
