Chicken and Tomato Sauce - suitable for 6 months plus

This started out as a robust stew idea which, when I realised what ingredients I had and the quantities, changed into a sauce (especially when I overblended the chicken.  Hey, we all have off days.)  As it happens he loved it with pasta and it really seemed to work, he loved it and as you can see was happily feeding himself, even if the high chair tray is currently in the dishwasher it got so messy.  Sometimes we have happy accidents!

Chicken and Tomato Sauce - made approx 5 portions for 11 month old (to serve with pasta)


500g Carton of passata
1/2 red, yellow or orange pepper, chopped into 3-5mm cubes
1 small courgette chopped into 3-5 mm cubes
1 chicken breast chopped into chunks
1 clove garlic
Olive oil


Fry the chicken breast in the oil until starting to brown.  Add the garlic and other vegetables then add the passata.  Cook until the chicken breast is cooked through and the vegetables are done.  Blend the chicken in a blender with a small amount of the sauce.  Serve with pasta.

If the flavour is a bit strong for your little one, you could always mix in a bit of cream cheese to tone it down.


  1. Oooo yummy, Josh loves pasta we will definatly try this sauce sometime x

    1. Thanks! There are so many easy ways with pasta for little ones. Wow I just realised this recipe is exactly 1 year old! I'm making home made pizza tonight and going to get my little one to help for the first time, if it works I'll be adding it to the blog.

  2. Great recipe, I'm sure my fussy six year old would love it too!
