Rocky's Homemade Surprise
by J A Gillim
4 lbs chicken thighs skin on
3 lbs ground beef 80/20
24 oz of frozen veggies- carrots, green beans, peas, squash etc your choice
2 cups of rolled oats
Cover chicken thighs with just enough water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook until done. (about 45 minutes) remove when done to cool.
Add the oats to the chicken broth and follow instructions on the box
Grind all veggies in the food processor and add with the ground beef to the broth. These don't need to cook for very long so somewhere around 3 or 4 minutes on medium.
Debone and remove the skin from the chicken thighs and add to the mixture...just stir in no need to cook anymore.
Rocky is a 90 pound Doberman...this mixture makes enough for a week for him.
I feed a cup and 1/2 of the mixture with a 1/2 cup of kibble (Earthborn) and a heaping tablespoon of pumpkin because I'm not sure of all the vitamins and minerals yet.
He also gets vitamin E in the AM and a 1/2 of a teaspoon of egg shell calcium. In the PM he gets the same amount of food and calcium with an Omega 3. Every other day he gets a probiotic. His vet says he is in excellent shape.
I hope your four-legged friends enjoy it as much as he does.
