Chicken w/ Sweet Potato & Apples Puree
Chicken with Sweet Potato (Yams) and Apples
1 chicken breast
1 sweet potato (yam)
Trim any fat off your chicken breast and cut it into chunks. Peel your sweet potato/yam and cut it into chunks. You'll want to use any kind of yam (the orange flesh) for a purely aesthetic reason. A regular sweet potato would be just as good but the mix will be an unappetizing whitish color.
Put both the chicken and the sweet potato in a pot with just enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, peel and cube your apples. When the sweet potato is tender (and the chicken cooked) throw in your apples, mix and cover. Cook for another couple minutes. Everything should be fork tender.
Place all your ingredients, reserving cooking liquid, into the food processor. Add as much liquid as you would like to produce the consistency your baby likes. I used all of it.
Peanut is a big fan of this puree and it has lots of nutrients for him!
The answer to yesterday's tupperware guessing game is.... Hot Spicy Pork Ear Thread! It's just spicy sliced pork ears. A lot of you were pretty darn close and Sasha was right on.
However, I think my favorite answer was "sturgeon genitalia" from Elle. You are so right- that totally sounds like something B would try.
