I think I am ready to introduce my 10 month old to chicken. What is the best way to cook it so that it is soft and moist enough for her? I am planning to give her smaller pieces that she can feed to herself.

I've been giving my DD chicken for a few months now. I've given it to her steamed or roasted without much trouble. Just bits off whatever I've been eating. She's less than a week away from her 1st birthday.

Come ponder with me about food!

mcnuggets! my 7 month old loves them! ... perfect shape and size for her small hands.











just kidding! I would probably blended it with a little foodprocessor and some chicken/bone broth. in the waaay old school, a mother would probably chew it first then give it to her baby, so this would probably replicate it best.

If you simmer it in some stock or water, covered, it'll be juicy and tender. Simmer it a long time, and it'll practically fall into pieces when you fork it. My kids loved pot-roasted chicken as babies. Well, they still do, really, but you know what I mean!

My son loves chicken cooked in coconut milk or yogurt. He also likes it with applesauce pretty well.

And with avocado... I would puree it the first few times, but then you can just soft cook it and cut into small pieces.

Thanks for your replies. I simmered it for an hour or so last night and shredded it with a fork. She doesn't like puree, so I will give her a few tiny shreds today at lunch. My husband is really worried about her choking, but she eats way bigger chunks of other foods. I even thought about soaking the cooked chicken in a little breast milk to make sure it is nice and moist.

If your butcher or grocery store has ground chicken, that's perfect! I usually give dd ground turkey, just cooked up in a pan. It crumbles easily. She loves it.
