Fast forward 3 years......here I am, making Gavin's fruits and veggies. This time, when it came time to start him on meat, I decided I would give it a try. I did. It was SUPER DUPER easy and I can't believe I never tried it before. I was kind of mad at myself actually!
I hope after reading through my instructions below and seeing the pictures, you'll realize that you can do this too! It's really not hard and just think about how much money you'll be saving yourself. Better yet, think about the wonderful, wholesome food you'll be feeding your baby! YOU CAN DO THIS! I'll be your own private cheerleader! Go
Chicken Baby Food
3 Chicken Thighs
1/4 cup water
Place your chicken thighs in the bottom of your crock, sprinkle with the poultry seasoning and then pour 1/4 cup water on the bottom.
Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours, or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
Remove the thighs and let them cool for about 15-20 minutes so they're easier to work with.
Remove the skin and bones, leaving you with the chicken only.
Place your chicken into a food processor.
Process it until it becomes a fine powder.
From here, here's what I do...
I place about 2 heaping teaspoon fulls into snack size baggies. This is about 2 servings.
I take these baggies and put them into the freezer and take them out as I need them.
For us, each baggie is enough for 2 days. I mix the chicken with Gavin's veggies in the evening. Sometimes I get CRAZY and mix apples, chicken and veggies together! WHOA! I know, I know, CRAZY! LOL
We're actually pretty straight forward with baby food. I don't make crazy concoctions. Gavin gets it as is. He's used to it and it's all he knows. Trust me, he's not complaining!
Again, you CAN do this! Your baby will thank you for it!
