At around 7 to 10 months babies are starting to eat more solid foods and less formula or breast milk. This is a perfect time to introduce some extra protein into their diet, and boneless, skinless chicken breast is a good place to start—it’s low in fat, which can be hard for their sensitive systems to digest.

Game plan: To reheat the baby food, let it thaw completely in the refrigerator, then heat in the microwave or on the stovetop. Stir well before serving.

  1. 1Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add water. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to medium low and gently simmer until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add peas and continue cooking until peas are tender, about 2 minutes more.
  2. 2Remove chicken and peas with a slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid, and place in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. While pulsing, add 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and continue pulsing until mixture is mostly smooth with a few chunks remaining, about 15 to 20 pulses. Let cool slightly, then divide into 1/4-cup portions, place in airtight containers, and refrigerate up to 2 days or freeze up to 6 weeks until ready to use.
