Chicken 'N Greens for Dogs (makes 9 cups)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 60 minutes
- 4 chicken leg quarters
- 1 large bag frozen turnip Greens, chopped
- 7 small jars organic baby food - 3 carrots, 2 peas, 2 squash
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ground egg shell
- chicken stock
- Boil the chicken in a dutch oven or large stock pot. Remove and let cool. (Save the liquid) Once cool enough to handle, discard the skin and bones. Shred the meat.
- Rinse out the dutch oven and add the cooked chicken back in. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the saved chicken stock.
- Mix thoroughly and add just enough chicken stock to give it plenty of moisture. I didn't measure but I would say roughly a cup.
- Heat over low heat stirring occasionally until the turnip greens have cooked. It will have the texture of a chili rather than a soup.
- Let cool to room temperature and serve.
Any greens will do - turnips, kale, spinach.
This can be stored in the refrigerator for about 5 days and in the freezer for up to 4 months. I make large batches and then freeze individual 1 cup servings which equals two meals for Kirby.
