Chicken recipes

A dear friend reminded me that I can post my recipes on my blog so here goes (with a chicky theme):

Chicken and sweet potato stew

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 large potato or about 3 small ones with skin on (its best to purchase potatoes organic
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion
  • Half a teaspoon of butter / other healthy oil like canola or olive oil

 Steps:

  1. Wash potatoes thoroughly. I usually dig out the eyes but keep the skin on as most of the nutrition is just under the skin and skinless potatoes is pretty much just starch.
  2. In a small saucepan, pan fry the onions in the oil until slightly browned and aromatised (if using olive oil or butter be careful to keep the temperature low)
  3. Add chicken and stir fry quickly for a minute.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients then add enough water to just cover all ingredients.
  5. Simmer over low flame till vegetables are soft.
  6. For stage 1 food, place all solid ingredients into blender and blend, adding the cooking liquid as neccesary to adjust consistency. For stage 2 food, remove potatoes and carrots and mash with a fork, place the potato skin into a clender together with chicken and onions with some cooking liquid, then conbine the mashed up food with blended food for a slightly lumpy texture.

Herbed chicken stew

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1/4 cauliflower
  • 1 onion
  • Sprig of sage (use the leaves only)
  • Half a teaspoon of butter / other healthy oil like canola or olive oil

 Steps:

  1. Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and add just enough water to cover all ingredients.
  2. Cook for an hour, or long enough to soften the sweet potato and cauliflower.
  3. For stage 1 food, place all solid ingredients into blender and blend, adding the cooking liquid as neccesary to adjust consistency. For stage 2 food, mash the sweet potatoes with a fork and blend the remaining ingredients then combine.
  4. For added texture, use remaining stock to cook some rice or other grains such as millet until soft and add to the mixture.
