Sweet-and-Sour Chicken Recipe

Sweet-and-Sour Chicken

Introduce baby to the yummy taste of takeout food without all the extra fat. This homestyle sweet-and-sour chicken has a lighter, fresher tasting sauce than typical restaurant versions. Serve with steamed brown or basmati rice.

For your toddler:
•   Omit the chile paste; adults can sprinkle red pepper flakes over their portions.
•   Cut a piece of chicken and a spoonful of vegetables into small pieces.
•   Serve it over rice in a small bowl or on a rimmed plate.
