  • 3.6 oz chicken breast
  • 1 cup butternut squash
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  • Heat the oven. Preheat the oven to 390ºF / 200ºC.
  • Prepare the ingredients. Wash, peel and slice the butternut squash into cubes (or ½ inch / 1. 5 cm thick sticks if BLW). Cut the chicken into cubes (or strips the width of two adult fingers put together if BLW).
  • Bake. Put the chicken and butternut on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 30 mins.
  • Make a puree. Once cooked, let cool and blend into a smooth puree. Add tsp by tsp of pre-boiled or bottled water if needed to reach desired consistency. For stage 2, stage 3 baby food combinations, or for baby-led weaning see notes below.
  • Allow to cool a bit before serving.

How to serve chicken and butternut squash for baby-led weaning?
  • Butternut squash needs to be so soft you could mash it between your fingers
  • Chicken should be the size of two fingers stuck together so it is easy for baby to hold. They will mostly just suck on it at this point
