DIRECTIONS

  • Begin by steaming all the main vegetables (carrots, cabbage, broccoli, green beans or french beans, spinach leaves) until they are all soft enough to nearly mash or poke through with a fork. Please do not forget to rinse your vegetables thoroughly before steaming them. When the vegetables are steamed, set them aside.
  • While your vegetables are steaming, place all your chicken in a pot and cover the chicken with enough water so that the water is about 1 inch about all the chicken. Bring the water to a slow boil and let the chicken slowly boil until the meat is cooked and a aromatic chicken broth presents itself. (Don't overcook your chicken to the point that the meat is seemingly dry.).
  • When the chicken is ready, remove and set aside the chicken and use the chicken broth you have just created to cook the brown rice. In a rice cooker, you will need 3 cups of chicken broth to cook the 1 1/2 cups of brown rice. If you use a regular pot and lid to cook the rice, keep an eye on the level of the broth as it cooks because you may or may not need to add a little broth as the rice cooks to keep from burning or drying out the rice. Better that the rice is a little moist than too dry.
  • While the rice is cooking, chop your chicken and all your steamed vegetables into small bite-sized pieces (imagine a quarter cut into four equal parts and that is about the size you want).
  • When the rice is done, combine your chopped chicken, vegetables and brown rice into a large bowl and mix it together adding the olive oil and a little more of the leftover chicken broth as you see fit.
  • Now the meal is ready but you probably want to let it cool down a little bit before serving it to your dog(s). It can be refridgerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days. Simply placing a small amount in the microwave will melt all the fats and oils in it again and leave your dog's tastebuds jumping!
