Tasty Tuesday: DogDaz Chicken & Rice

If you are a regular DogDaz blog reader then you know that Louise has a very sensitive stomach and Sofie has developed allergies to “who knows what and possibly everything.”  Every once and a while, I give their tummies a break with my simple DogDaz chicken and rice dinner.  This is not their regular diet since I do not add the required vitamins and minerals that a dog should have to maintain good health.  I use this to get their systems back on track. Some people say to fast your animal for 24 hours before starting any change, but I don’t do that. If your fur-baby’s tummy is out of whack, you might want to try this for a couple of days.

Note: Please make sure to get your dog proper animal care with a Vet when they are feeling poorly.  This post is by no means a cure for anything.  I believe that food is medicine, and medicine is food and just wanted to share a simple tummy tamer.

Ingredients (for 12 cups):

4 pieces plain boiled CHICKEN (As lean as possible. I cut all the fat and skin off.)

1 cup white RICE

(Optional) 1/2 to 3/4 cup 100% pure PUMPKIN (NOT pumpkin pie mix, which is full of sugar and other stuff)

Directions:

Time to prepare: about 90 minutes all together

1. Prepare the Chicken
IMG_1002

– Boil water (DO NOT ADD SALT.  Dogs do not need salt and too much can cause sodium ion poisoning).

– When boiling, reduce heat to simmer, cover pot and cook about 30 minutes or until the meat basically falls off the bone.

– Remove chicken and let cool.

– Save the broth (you will need some later and it also makes great chicken soup stock).  Skim the fat from the cooled chicken broth for the rice.

IMG_1006– When cooled, debone the chicken into small chunks and get rid of any still remaining skin or fat. (Think LEAN.)

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Prepare the Rice

IMG_1005 – Measure 2.5 cups (591.47 ml) of the broth (from previous step) into a pan and bring to a boil.

IMG_1003– Add 1 cup (236.58 ml) of white rice (easiest to digest for upset tummy) to broth and reboil.  Then cover tightly and simmer for 20 minutes.

– The rice will be soggy and soft when done.

– Let rice cool.

 

 

 

3.  Mix Chicken and Rice

IMG_1010– Add the rice to the chicken and blend them together with a fork.

5.  Feed hungry dogs

– How much you feed them depends on the dog’s size,  I give Louise (who is 58 lbs) 1 1/2 cups and Sofie (47 lbs) 2/3 cup, but don’t have any idea of the calorie or protein count.

– Mix with at least 1/4 cup of warm water to make it saucy.

 

Yummy
