Baby Finger Food - Chopped Chicken Fingers W/ Apples

“This one is awesome! My son loves them and they're easily made ahead and frozen (which I love). I found the recipe on and I'm posting here for safe keeping. It is recommended for babies that are 8 months and older, but they also advise speaking to your pediatrician before starting your baby on solids. Also, remember to follow the RULE OF FOUR (wait 4 days after introducing new foods) and make sure your baby has had no allergic reactions to any of the foods in this recipe before serving it!”
