How to Boil Chicken for Dogs

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, combining some salt and pepper with your chicken. Next, place the cut into an oven-safe dish or pan that is deep enough to be fully submerged in water. Next, fill a pot large enough for all of your chicken pieces with cold water and bring them to a boil on medium-high heat.
Once boiling, turn off the stovetop burner and place the whole thing inside the oven set at 350°F while waiting about 20 minutes (depending on how well cooked you prefer for your dog).

For every four pounds of meat, add one quart of water, so if cooking eight pounds worth, use two quarts total! If desired, any vegetables can also be added, such as carrots or onions.

If you do not have a pot big enough to hold all of the chicken, place it in two pots and cook half at a time or divide your cut up into smaller pieces to fill more space (a whole chicken can be cooked as four individual thighs). Once finished cooking, remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes before serving to your dog.

How long it should be cooked depending on size:

– For every pound of meat, preheat the oven to 425°F – Cook for about 30 minutes until the desired well-done level is achieved.

– For every two pounds of meat, preheat the oven to 400°F – Cook for about 45 minutes until the desired well-done level is achieved.

– If boiling water, boil for 15-20 minutes for every two pounds of meat
– If oven cooking, cook about 30 minutes until the desired well-done level is achieved.
