"This is a healthy addition to, or replacement for, your dog's daily meals that he will happily devour."
2 chicken leg quarters
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 (10 ounce) package chopped frozen
spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans - rinsed,
drained and mashed
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cup olive oil
1.Place the chicken leg quarters in a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 40 minutes. Remove the legs and allow to cool. Strain and return the cooking liquid to the pot. Once the legs have cooled. remove and discard the skin and bones; chop the meat, and set aside.
2.Stir the brown rice into the reserved chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, 45 to 50 minutes. Drain off any excess liquid, and add the rice to the bowl with the chicken.
3.Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly and no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Pour off any excess grease, and place the beef into the bowl. Stir in the oats, spinach, broccoli, kidney beans, carrots, and olive oil. Store the dog food in resealable containers in the freezer. Thaw the daily portions overnight in the refrigerator.

 because i have 900 million dogs i do 50 servings and freeze it....

i have learned to start by cooking the chicken and the beans all day in the crockpot, and add the veggies and oatmeal in last. i mix up the veggies everytime. i often use black beans as well as kidney beans. i also usually get stew meat, a very lean pork, lean ground turkey or fish to mix up instead of the 1 lb of ground beef. they also all get a multi vitamin (calcium is muy importante!!) and fish oil.

its so good, even my hubby will eat it!

hope someone atleast finds this enteratining!
