It was a hard candy kinda night last night when Sadie thought she hit the jackpot and quietly decided to eat an open bag of little “greenies” breath buster bites.
Like any child left alone with their own bag of candy her eyes said one thing and later her tummy said another. So after her YES moment of glory we had to help fix the issue.
We find that the best remedy is a pumpkin chicken broth rice.
Now chicken broth can be a labor intense pressure cooker process but I will tell you the quick way to create it for your furry friend in need of a tummy fix.
1 boneless chicken breast
2-3 cups water (or more depending on your sauce pan – you want to cover the chicken breast in the water when boiling)
3 Tablespoons Organic Pumpkin Puree (not the kind used in pumpkin pies but the organic 100% pure like this one we use Nummy Tum-Tum)
2 cups rice (boiled)
a small dash of salt
Rinse the chicken breast under cold clean water.
Place the chicken breast in a saucepan large enough to hold the chicken breast. Add enough cold clean water 2-3 cup approximately to cover it. Add in a dash of salt.
Bring the water to the boil over high heat.
Reduce the heat to medium once water is boiling and cover the saucepan. Cook approximately 10 minutes over medium heat. Make sure the chicken meat is not pink and cooked properly.
Remove chicken breast from water and allow to rest. At least 5 minutes before shredding into small pieces. I use the leftover water to make my rice.
In another saucepan make your rice mixture.
2 Cups of Rice would need approximately 4 cups or water I
(rice is made at a 2:1 ratio) thus 2 cups water per one cup of rice.
Once the water and rice boils add in your 3 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Puree reduce your heat to very very low, mix well and cover the pan and allow the rice to absorb the water and pumpkin puree approximately 20 minutes depending on your grain of rice.
Once the rice is fluffy, add in your shredded chicken breast and serve in small portions once cool to the touch.
Do not worry if it takes time for your furry friend to be interested in eating again after a upset tummy, the pumpkin chicken broth rice will keep in the fridge and be easily reheated for when s/he is ready. Bone appetit.
