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.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • ½ (100g) boneless and skinless chicken breast, diced small
  • ¼ cup (45g) celery, diced small
  • ¼ cup (30g) potatoes, peeled and diced small
  • 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 6 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 the 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.

Recipe notes

  • Freeze the porridge in the Anytime Freezer Trays and freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat as needed.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
