Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken hearts; cook and stir until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Pour into the bowl a food processor and chop. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Add minced chicken to the frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir until evenly white throughout and no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • While minced chicken is cooking, place carrots, apples, pears, spinach, strawberries, blueberries, and French beans into the bowl of the food processor. Blend until finely chopped.

  • Stir cooked chicken hearts into the frying pan with the cooked minced chicken. Spoon chopped vegetable-fruit mixture into the pan. Cook and stir gently over medium heat until vegetables are lightly cooked, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool fully, about 30 minutes. Divide into portions and serve.

Cook's Notes:

Although this meal is well balanced, I always supplement with a variety of vitamins, minerals, and oils based on my dog's unique needs.

The yield from this recipe will feed my 14-pound dog about 20 meals. I tend to freeze 2 portions at once, so that I can remove and defrost easily per day.

In large quantities, apple seeds are toxic to dogs, so be sure to remove and discard these safely.
