Chicken soup fritters

Created this recipe for when my baby was re-introducing foods after having a stomach bug (mostly vomiting). I initially wanted to offer plain chicken soup, however since she likes to feed herself and doesn’t master grabbing a spoon yet, bit-sized chicken soup fritters seemed like the perfect solution.

If your little one is having tummy troubles, specially vomiting, its best to wait about 6 hours before introducing solids. First start with clear liquids and transition them to a bland diet. But always check with your healthcare provider.

Yields: 12 bite-sized fritters 

Ingredients:

¼ C short-grain rice

4 baby carrots, raw

4 baby potatoes, cut in half

1 oz cooked shredded chicken breast

½ C chicken broth

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to low heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
  3. Remove from heat, uncover and cool down. 
  4. Mash all the ingredients together with your hands and press them slightly into rounds about 2 inches in diameter.

NOTE: Use white rice if baby/toddler is having a sensitive stomach, otherwise you can switch to brown rice but increase water to 2/3 of a cup and cook for a total of 45 minutes.
