Fruity chicken and rice recipe

The fruity chicken and rice is a dish that babies love for its sweetness from the apricots and great texture. Find more on Kidspot New Zealand.



  • 1 cup cooked white rice
  • 1/4 cup cooked chicken breast, finely diced
  • 400g tin apricots in fruit juice


Drain the apricots and reserve the juice. Take half of the apricots and blend using a stick mixer. Add a little of the reserved juice if required.

Dice the remaining apricots.

In a saucepan, place the rice with the chicken, puree and diced apricot. Warm gently and serve.


  • If your baby requires a smoother texture or is still having pureed foods, you can use the reserved juice to thin it out as you puree it.
  • I used a portion of BBQ chicken for this dish and served the rest to my family.
