Chicken & Sweet Potato Dinner
Grain & gluten free chicken recipe
Nutrient-rich chicken thigh and a plethora of high quality fresh fruits and vegetables from apples to carrots and kale to swede. Yum, yum!
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.
This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family as it would be for your dog. Just add the seasoning of your choice when you serve your human family, and not when you’re cooking your dog’s food. If you don’t fancy the chicken liver yourself, cook it separately and add it to your dog’s food just before apportioning. Do the same with the Eggshell Powder and salmon oil.
- 5kg (11lb) Chicken Thigh diced
- 250g (9oz) Chicken Liver diced

Dice chicken thigh and liver. Add meat and a small amount 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. Add more water if necessary. When cooked, drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set meat aside until required. Add vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first – carrots and swede first followed 5 minutes later by sweet potato and parsnips. After a further 5 minutes, add the peas. When cooked, turn off heat if using electric (reduce heat to minimum if cooking with gas), and add apples and kale. After about 5 minutes, add the Eggshell Powder, salt and salmon oil to the vegetables 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.
