Sometimes our four-legged friends have special dietary needs, such as when they are ill and need something nutritious but easily digestible. Here’s a recipe for a healthy chicken and rice meal for your canine companion.



Makes 10 servings, provides a total of 6,645 kcal and is suitable for a dog who is moderately active and weighs 10kg.

About the Recipe

This is a recipe that based on Donald R. Strobeck’s “Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets”. It’s an ideal recipe for making batches of meals that can be frozen for later use. Some owners may need to add a multivitamin (ask your vet) to make sure the micro-nutrient needs of your dog are being met.

You can also add portions of this recipe to your dog’s dry food as a way to add variety to their meals. Also, keep in mind that any changes you make to your pet’s diet should be done so slowly and over the course of 7 days to allow them time to adjust.

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • 1 kilogram of boneless lean raw chicken
  • 7 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 cups of thawed frozen peas
  • 2 cups of grated carrots
  • 2 cups of fresh or thawed frozen spinach
  • 1 Liter of water
  • 2 teaspoon of a reduced sodium (potassium chloride) salt substitute
  • 1 teaspoon of table salt
  • 1 tablespoon of bone meal powder
  • 2 cans (220 grams in total) of sardines (in tomato sauce)
  • 10 cups of cooked white rice

Equipment You’ll Need:

  • 1 Frying Pan
  • 1 Large Stockpot or Sauce Pan

Cooking Method:

  1. Slice your chicken and then stir-fry it in batches, using half (3 1/2 tablespoons) of the vegetable oil mentioned above.
  2. While the meat is cooking, heat up the remaining 3 ½ tablespoons of oil in a large stockpot, then add the vegetables. Stir for 5 minutes.
  3. Next, add the water, bone meal powder, and salt to the stockpot, along with the chicken and cook it on a low heat for 1 hour.
  4. After an hour, remove the stockpot from heat and add in your cooked rice and sardines.
  5. Once cool, you can divide the mixture into 10 equal portions for freezing.


  1. Before serving from frozen, allow the portion to thaw in the refrigerator (at less than 40°C), then reheat until it is hot and steamy.
  2. Serve at room temperature.
  3. Any uneaten food should be discarded within an hour.
