Plum Banana Chicken is a very tasty meal for a baby 7-9 months and up. It is also loaded with nutrients like protein, fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, manganese, vitamin C, niacin and selenium. Plums are coming back in season now and mix wonderfully with the chicken and banana. There are many varieties of plum, look for black plums as they are the sweetest.
Always make sure the consistency of your baby's food is one he can handle. Before combining food, make sure your baby has tried each one individually first. For 7-9 months, most babies will be ready for a mushy mash consistency. This is a little thicker and lumpier than a smooth and creamy Stage 1 puree. Just make sure the lumps are soft so they don't pose a choking hazard.
What you'll need:
1/2 lb of ground chicken - preferably organic and grass fed, if you can't find that just be sure the chicken is hormone, steroid and antibiotic free (it will say it on the front of the package)
2 large or 4 small plums - washed and chopped
1 banana - peeled and cut into pieces
1/2 cup of low sodium chicken broth
*Pour the chicken broth into a medium skillet and bring to a boil over high heat.
*Lower the heat to medium-high and add the chicken. Cook for 3-5 minutes until chicken is cooked all the way through and no longer pink inside. Use the end of a spatula to break up the chicken while it cooks so that the pieces stay nice and small.
*Place the cooked chicken into a food processor with the plum and banana. Pulse until desired consistency is achieved.
*Plum Banana Chicken can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer.
