IS BOILED CHICKEN GOOD FOR DOGS?

Boiled chicken breasts are an excellent food for dogs and have a great protein source and are also a low fat food.

INGREDIENTS

  • Chicken breasts
  • White rice
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Coconut oil

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN AND RICE DOG FOOD

Skinless and boneless chicken breasts are used in this homemade dog food recipe as the white meat is easier on your dog's digestion.

The chicken and white rice are cooked together in a pot, then mixed with lightly cooked vegetables. We added the vegetables for extra vitamins but these can be omitted if you need a bland meal.

We shred the cooked chicken breasts so it's easier to eat but you could cut the cooked chicken breast into small pieces for the size of your dog.

Remember to go slowly when introducing new foods. And we recommend checking with your veterinarian first if your dog has any digestive issues or other health concerns.

STORAGE AND FREEZING

Store the homemade chicken and rice dog food in the refrigerator in sealed containers. It will last up to 4 days.

This can also be frozen for when you need a bland dog food. Spoon a serving portion into ziplocked bags and remove the air (I suck the air out with a straw). The dog food will last for up to 3 months in the freezer.

Defrost the dog food in the refrigerator and ensure that the chicken and rice are thoroughly defrosted before giving to your dogs. You could gently warm the food before serving too.

RECIPE TIPS

For a very bland dish specifically for an upset stomach, omit the vegetables and serve just the chicken and white rice.

You could use brown rice in place of the white if you are not feeding this for any upset stomach reasons.

    It would be helpful if you had measurements or weight for each ingredient. My vet recommended 60% meat, 20% mixed vegetables & 10% carbs (brown rice) increase based on stool w/ pro prebiotic mixed AT TIME OF SERVING.

      There's a button on the recipe card that will give you metric measurements with a click.

      Hmm. Good to know, except it doesn’t add up to 100%, so perhaps there’s a typo?

    There is no water in this recipe. Is that correct?

    Reply

    • AngelaC says

      That is correct. You could save some of the water that the chicken is poached in, if you wanted a wetter dish.

    My vet said my dog is underweight. What do you reconmend?

      One way to add calories to your dog's diet is to supplement their food with appropriate human food. Examples of safe human food supplements include roasted chicken without the skin, boiled eggs, canned tuna, non-fat plain yoghurt, or plain canned pumpkin.
      I had the same issue with my youngest dog and I started added a sachet of dog food to his meals. Double check with your vet though.

      This chicken and rice recipe may work. If not, try the beef stew recipe. And wow, 15 years!

    My dog is weighs ~50 pounds. Is the serving size per meal or per day? Some people feed their dogs once per day, I feed 2x per day. Thank you!
