Homemade Dog Food Recipes

Some dog foods can be quite expensive. Why not try and make your own home made dog food recipes at home?  It’s easy – and at least you know what your dog is eating!

Chicken & Vegetable Rice Mix

  • 1.5kg minced chicken meat
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen vegetable blend (no garlic or onions) minced
  • 4 cups rice
  • 6.5 cups water

Place chicken, vegetables, and rice into a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Stir in water until the mixture is smooth. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 25 minutes. Cool completely before serving; store covered in the refrigerator or freeze into individual serves.

Makes 12 serves for an average size dog.
