Chicken Cat Food Recipes
CHICKEN AND PASTA STEW
2 packages ground chicken (Or turkey)
2-3 small carrots, cooked
2-3 cups macaroni (Cooked)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Boil the macaroni until tender. Cook up the chicken in a frying pan. Mix everything together in food processor. Add the oil and the garlic. Mix well.
FINICKY EATERS MEAL
1 cup chicken, boiled or microwaved
1/4 cup fresh broccoli, steamed
1/4 cup shredded carrots, steamed
Mix ingredients with enough chicken broth to hold together. This same recipe can be used with fish (broil or microwave until it flakes.) You can also vary the recipe by adding rice or other vegetables. Ensure the food has cooled sufficiently prior to serving to your cat.
CHICKEN STIR FRY
Dice raw chicken breast. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan, and cook the meat quickly over a high flame, stirring all of the time. When the chicken is almost cooked, stir in a few flaked almonds for added crunch. Allow to cool and serve to your cate with a little plain boiled rice.
A lovely recipe for cats sure to be an instant hit!
3 cups chicken broth
4-1/2 tbl flour
1/4 cup carrots --diced into small cubes
3/4 cup minced meat (cooked pieces of chicken or fish) - optional, but it would be better to use this
After the chicken broth has been made, allow it too cool for around 2 minutes.
Add all the flour and mix. Some flour might not dissolve but this is absolutely no problem (It will when you heat the mixture later on).
Heat broth and flour mixture on high heat until a thick creamy mixture is formed. Immediately add all other ingredients and pour all contents of this meal into the cat's container.
Allow it to set into jelly like substance with the carrots and minced meat suspended in it. Serve to your cat.
