I froze it in ice-cube trays.

When she's ready to eat it, I microwave it for 1:30. I stir it really well, and always check the spoon before each bite to make sure I didn't miss any "chunks." No chunks so far

I've also boiled chicken, peas, & brown rice together then blended it with the immersion blender as well.

I haven't tried freezing meat alone. I always put it with veggies & water.
You're not supposed to use the leftover water from carrots due to the nitrates in it. You can read about it at wholesomebabyfoods.com.

Re: tips for pureeing meat?

I think it's much easier to wait until they are good with finger/table foods to introduce meat. We had good luck with chicken breast cooked in the crockpot around 8-9 months with dd. But we didn't really do purees at all.
