Homemade apricot chicken meatballs kids snack recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
250g chicken thigh, minced
1 cup pumpkin, grated
1 cup water
5 dried apricots
5 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup of flour, extra for coating
Step 1: Add chicken mince with grated pumpkin and apricots and blend in a food processor, stir through the flour so the batter is dry enough to roll into balls.
Step 2: Take a spoonful of the mixture at a time and roll it into a ball. Spread some extra flour onto a plate and roll the chicken balls in the flour so the outside is coated.
Step 3: Cook the chicken balls on low in a fry pan by first adding oil, then placing the chicken balls at least 1cm apart from each other. Turn the balls every few minutes until they are brown on the outside and cooked through the middle. A low heat is best for this so they cook all the way through easily. You can also squash the balls with a fork to make them into “patties”.
Apricots are extremely nutrient rich fruit for baby food. They act as a gentle laxative and also help in brain development. Chicken is a highly nutritional baby food and the best part is that it contains less fat that other meats. It is rich in protein, vitamin B6 and the powerful antioxidant selenium.
