Chicken and Corn with Cilantro Puree

I always recommend that you keep a little garden of herbs growing (if your weather permits) so you can trim a few pieces off at times to jazz up a recipe, even if it’s just for baby. Or maybe I should say, especially if it’s for your baby! I feel like we don’t give kids enough credit when it comes to flavors they’ll enjoy.

In this recipe, I used cilantro leaves and stems. When steamed, cilantro loses some of its potency, which is nice in order to mellow it out for baby’s new palate. The chicken’s flavor, mixed with the sweetness of the corn and spiciness of the cilantro made this a winner with my kids.

    How long will it be good for if I were to portion the recipe into ice cube trays?
