This recipe was thrown together by default. There were very few ingredients in the fridge and Kenya had to eat.
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 like this 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 will enjoy. In this recipe, I used the leaves and stems. When steamed, cilantro loses some of its potency, which is nice in order to mellow it out for babies new palate. The chicken’s flavor, mixed with the sweetness of the corn and spiciness of the cilantro made this a winner with Kenya.
