How to make chicken pumpkin dog food
Fresh pumpkin is used but you could use homemade pumpkin puree too. Pumpkin is a great source of fiber for dogs too.
Brown rice can be swapped with white rice if your dog is having digestive issues and you need a meal easy on their stomach. The rice is cooked by itself and then added to the remaining cooked ingredients.
When chopping the pumpkin and chicken into pieces, try to keep them the same size.
Ground chicken could be used in place of the chicken breasts.
Cook the rice, pumpkin and chicken at the same time for a quicker meal.
Keep cooked brown rice in the freezer in an airlock bag or container for quick dog dinners.
If you need a blander dish or reduced calories for your dog, boil the chicken pieces in water rather than frying them in coconut oil.
