Chicken, Potato, and Celery Purée

Chicken, Potato, and Celery Purée

Equally delicious served chunky or smooth, this vegetable and chicken soup can be adapted for all ages. Puree it for infants just starting solids, or serve it as a creamy stew for toddlers. Either way, they’re sure to ask for seconds.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • ½ cup (120ml) chicken stock, vegetable stock, or water
  • salt, to taste


  1. Add the diced chicken, celery, potatoes, half the amount of liquid, and salt into the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 7 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are very tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Add the remaining liquid. Using an immersion blender or blender, puree until mixture is as smooth or chunky as you like. Season to taste.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Feed just as a puree on its own, or mix it with some cooked rice or other grains if you’re starting on chunky foods.
  • Add extra stock or water to turn this into a creamy soup.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
