Chicken & Rice Hotpot
Gluten free chicken recipe
Nutritious chicken thigh combined with aromatic and easily digestible basmati rice and an abundance of quality fresh fruits and vegetables. Whose a lucky dog then?
If you’re still feeding your dog commercial dog food, we would suggest using this meal as a dressing or topping by combining the two over the course of three or four days. Reduce your dog’s other food accordingly so as to avoid unhealthy weight gain.
If your dog will let you, there’s no reason why the whole family couldn’t enjoy this recipe. It’s simple, quick, full of goodness and very tasty. Just add potatoes and extra veg and you’re away to go. If you don’t fancy the nutrient-rich chicken liver yourself, cook that separately and add it to your dog’s food just before apportioning. Do the same with the Eggshell Powder and salmon oil.
- 510g (1lb 2oz) Chicken Thigh diced
- 45g (1 ½oz) Chicken Liver diced
- 90g (3 ¼oz) Basmati Rice cooked
- 81g (3oz) Carrots skin on, finely diced
- 63g (2 ¼oz) Potatoes skin on, finely chopped
- 63g (2 ¼oz) Peas frozen
- 54g (2oz) Kale finely chopped (complete with stalks)
- 9g (½oz) Apple finely chopped (cored, pips removed)
- 1g (small pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 4g (1 heaped tablespoon) Poultry Herb Blend
- 10g (2 level teaspoons) Eggshell Powder
- 35ml (2 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Dice the chicken thigh and liver. Add meat and 1/2 pint of water to a saucepan together with the Poultry Herb Blend and cook for approximately 30 minutes on a low heat until the water is clear and the chicken cooked. Drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set meat aside until required. Add rice. Add vegetables, longest cooking times first – carrots followed 5 minutes later by potatoes and peas. When cooked, turn off heat, add kale and apple. After about 5 minutes, add the Eggshell Powder, salt and salmon oil and then blend all the ingredients together. Allow to cool before apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
