I used to make my own baby food when the kids were younger. This was one of their favourites. Gradually, I added garlic powder, onion powder (as they got older), parsley, herbs, ginger, cayenne, cumin. Soon, they were able to eat all the spicy foods that I cooked. This is a good basic recipe even if you're not trying to introduce new flavours, vegetables , etc. Prep time includes the time to bake the chicken. For younger babies, this may be good for 2-3 serivings. For older ones, it would probably be sufficient for one serving. I have recorded it as one serving in this case.
- 2 teaspoons butter or 2 teaspoons margarine
- 1 teaspoon unbleached flour
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup chicken, cooked,boned and shredded
- 1⁄4 large potato, boiled or baked and cubed
- 1 tablespoon grated white cheddar cheese or 1 tablespoon mild cheddar cheese (optional)
- vegetables, of your choice (optional)
- salt (optional)
- Grill or bake chicken, remove bones and shred.
- Bake or boil potato and chop into small cubes or mash.
- Melt butter in a saucepan.
- Add milk,flour, and cheese and make a sauce.
- Add chicken and potato to it.

My daughter loves it and makes mmm... sounds when eating it..lol! Thanks for a great recipe.
I made this for my 22 month old and she loved it. She isn't much of a meat eater so I put 1/8 C. of chicken, boiled and cubed potatoes, 1/8 C. peas, a pinch of garlic powder and onion powder and I threw in some colby cheese. I tried it too, it was very good! Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe!
I give this 5 stars on behalf of my 14 month old daughter who couldn't get enough...she ate the whole thing! I've been looking for healthy recipes for her and this fits the bill perfectly. I cut the cooking time down by microwaving a small red potato and throwing a small chicken breast on the George Foreman. I also added some no-salt added peas, which she loves. Thanks again...can't wait to try some of your other baby food recipes.
