Just thought I'd follow up on Jim's thread regarding boiled or baked chicken. So I checked to see what Sabine thought on this. Here's her reply...
"Really depends on what the dog can tolerate.
If fat is a problem or a dog is overweight, skinless breast is best. If neither of these matter, skinless thighs are a better option, since they provide more nutrients than white breast meat. If a dog needs to gain weight and tolerates fat, skin-on thighs are great. Hearts, gizzards and (within reason) liver are also great.
Always boneless for cooking (unless they are removed afterwards), raw they can be fed with the bone in.
I prefer gently simmering cuts of chicken in a small amount of liquid (no full-on boil is necessary, and it destroys more nutrients), or pan-browning ground chicken or breast cut in chunks, since these cook quickly."
