Baby food: Lemon chicken with couscous

I was supposed to post this recipe yesterday but Owen got poorly last night so we had to take him to the hospital. As we rushed to leave I left all the food out on the counter. I had some chicken left in the fridge and made a new batch today. Owen is exhausted and has a high fever but all tests came back ok so he just needs to rest until he feels better. The poor thing has been sleeping next to me all day. Hopefully he will feel better very soon:(

This is a recipe for 2-3 adult portions + 2 baby portions. Just wait with adding salt until you have put one filet aside for the baby food.


Recipe: Lemon chicken with couscous

(2-3 adult portions + 2 baby portions)

1/4 cup (approx 0,5 dl) olive oil

1-2 crushed garlic cloves

grated lemon zest from 2 lemons

juice from 2 lemons

2 tsp dried oregano

4 chicken filets

For the baby food you also need: 2 tbsp creme fraiche, one portion of couscous and 1/2 cup (approx 1 dl) sweet corn

Heat the oven to 200°C.

Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the crushed garlic and cook for one minute on low heat. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and oregano to the pan. Pour into an oven dish just big enough for the chicken filets. Place the chicken filets in the dish, spoon some of the lemon mixture on top and sprinkle some black pepper on each filet.

Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile prepare one portion of couscous and whatever side dish you choose for the adults (rice, couscous or mashed potato).

Once the chicken is cooked, put one filet and 50 ml of the lemon gravy to the side for the baby version.

For the adults: add some salt and serve the chicken with rice, couscous or mashed potato.

Finish the baby version by blending the chicken with the lemon gravy, couscous, creme fraiche and sweet corn.
