anyone have a chicken recipe?

So since Jasper has been sick and I have been feeding boiled chicken and rice.. He is so, so, so very happy. and of course Cash has been getting a little chicken thrown into the NV medallions. I have just been boiling up chicken tenders and cutting them up mixing them with the rice...what would I have to add to this to make it a complete and balanced meal? And how many chicken tenders would an 18 lb dog get a day?

pretty good. Jas has never had tootsie rolls. always a bit loose and it is still that way-- but perhaps a bit more formed. You know, controversially, I cook the medallions so I always worry that I am cooking out nurtients...but when I tried them raw Cash got that horrible illness that could have killed him...so no more raw in our family. So wondering If I should just try a homemade cooked diet. Although, about two month prior to Jas throwing up...I started giving just Jasper fewer medallions and some kibble and he seemed to do better on that too. so maybe I shouldn't rock the boat.

I don't have a chicken recipe, but thought I would chime in. I know you can use supplements like Missing Link and others if you think they are not getting enough nutrients. I feed Brady boiled chicken mixed with his kibble and then a little bit of water to make gravy.

My Happy would only eat thighs on a chicken from my HAND!!!...didn't care for the white!! I gradually threw in 6-7 pieces of kibble with a sprinkle of warm water and parmesan cheese in a "dish" to stink it up a bit..loves IT!!! I have gradually over the last two weeks added more and more kibble each feeding (eats once a day) and he inhales it. I have loads of oven cooked thighs with the skin removed after cooking (all the fat is now drained off) precooked in my freezer ready to serve after warming them up in the microwave if I forgot to defrost them (like tonight)!! I better go feed them..Ricky is chewing my leg..I think he is hungry!! Trish

you know jasper has actually been eating pretty well before he got sick. He is actually less finicky now than Cash. But it is just that he is less itchy and he has been so so so so sweet. it's like thanks mom...that was good.
