A Nutritional Meal for Dogs Chicken Delight

Bichon Dogs

Yoda and Casper love to eat. They can be really fussy when it comes to dog food. We have tried lots of different brands and there really is only a few types Yoda and Casper like. To be honest they would much prefer to eat the meals we eat as a family but for obvious reasons this wouldn’t be the best option for our pets.

There Are Lots of Good Foods for Dogs and I’ve Created a List of the Top 20 Foods to Give Dogs.





Cottage Cheese



Flax Seed



Green Beans

Lean Meat 








Sweet potatoes

Natural Yoghurt

A few weeks ago when we were sent a Luxury Dog Bowl set from Turtle Mat, we cooked a nutritious meal for Yoda and Casper.

We named our recipe Chicken Delight because I have never seen our dogs eat a meal so fast. The Dogs loved using their new bowls and loved the meal and today I’ve decided to share the recipe.

Yoda and Casper love Chicken Delight. It is a really healthy option and a real treat full of goodness and nutrition. I’m planning on researching and creating some more delicious meals for our Dogs to help keep them healthy and give them something different on special occasions.

  1. I know my parents-in-law found it was far more beneficial for their dogs to have raised bowls than rather putting them directly on the floor.

  2. Yoda & Casper are so lucky to have an owner like you! My sprocker is very fussy so we’re always having to change his food but we have to be careful as he has Addison’s disease so need to watch his weight but the constant begging is so hard to ignore! I’ve made a note of your top 20 foods & angling to try introduce some fresher foods to see if that works (he’s completely rejected the 4 bags of Iams I’ve just bought, grrrr!)

    1. Thanks Ali. These are good foods to give the dogs and im sure giving them healthy options is a great thing. Yes our dogs are so so fussy at times too.

  3. You’ve inspired me. We had to try loads of different brands of food for our cat because she kept being sick. We eventually found something but its a limited range.

    I never even thought of cooking for her! I am now going to be googling cat food recipes all day! Thank you 🙂

    1. Oh good luck. I haven’t thought of cooking for a cat either lol! I guess there are good foods out there but surely healthy home made cant be too bad if it its using good food which are good for our pets.

  4. Omg, Angela! Your dogs are absolutely adorable! I never knew that dogs could eat so many good things that are enjoyed by people too and your recipe for the chicken meal you made then sounds perfect for doggies! I don’t have any pets but I would totally love to have a dog and I think I’d like to cook for them as well. Great post!

  5. Your dogs are so so cute, those dog bowls are for more attractive than the normal ugly plastic ones. I would never think to make home made dog food but I imagine it’s far more healthy! like humans microwave food v’s home cooked lol xx

    1. We don’t always either. It was an experiment and as I’m often quite unwell and John has to manage caring and cooking, this was a one off which we may do again for their birthday or very special occasion but not regular.

  6. Great recipe! I would love to try this recipe and hoping that my friend will love it too. Nice bowl too. 🙂 By the way, thank you for sharing, how nice of you to share this recipe.
