Chicken is a firm favourite with babies and this tender poached chicken pairs beautifully with soft creamy carrots.  



  1. Add the carrots to a saucepan with enough bone broth or water to cover the veggies. Bring to the boil, reduce to simmer and cook until tender.  Remove the carrots and allow the broth/water.

  2. Add the sliced chicken and lemon to the pot of simmering broth/water. Add more water if needed so the chicken is covered and continue to simmer for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Drain the chicken. Add the carrots, garlic clove and ground cumin and chicken to a food processor and blend until desired consistency is achieved – adding more water or bone broth if needed.

  4. You can safely store this purée in the fridge for up to 3 days.
