Which meat eater doesn’t love a traditional Sunday roast chicken with all the trimmings? If you’re baby led weaning, or feeding a toddler, they will enjoy this staple family meal too. A traditional accompaniment to classic roast chicken is a delicious chicken gravy. So good – Sunday dinners wouldn’t be the same without it.
Most traditional gravies are too salty for babies and toddlers – Bisto Gravy granules have 14g salt per 100g! The government recommendation for babies under 1 year is 1g of salt, rising to 2g for 1 year plus. Anything with more than 1.5g salt per 100g is considered to have a high salt content and will be unsuitable for babies and toddlers.
But I wouldn’t have Jonah missing out at our Sunday meal time! So I created a quick and easy chicken gravy recipe to be lower in salt and suitable for babies and toddlers, and I’d like to share the recipe with you. It tastes so much better than gravy made from gravy granules.
The recipe uses Kallo Organic very low salt chicken stock cubes rather than regular salty stock.
Typically we all have this low salt version now – it’s so tasty! If we want salt we can add it back in later with our Homdox salt grinder.
If you prefer to have a salty gravy just for adults, you can freeze the leftovers from this recipe into an ice cube tray and pop them out as needed, which is super convenient!
What do you think ? Will you try the gravy? Let me know in the comments!
