Almost-Spot's Stew

Almost-Spot's Stew¹
    1 whole chicken, preferably "free range" or packaged with "no hormones or antibiotics" on the label 2 cups brown rice 6 stalks celery 8 carrots, scrubbed but not peeled 2 or 3 yellow squash 2 or 3 zucchini 1 small broccoli crown handful of green beans²

Wash chicken, then cover with water in a large stew pot. Cut vegetables into pieces and add to pot. Add rice. Cook until chicken almost falls off the bone and vegetables are tender. Completely debone the chicken. This is extremely important, as cooked chicken bones can splinter and cause serious intestinal damage. Pour the stew into a blender and blend or chop until mixture is coarse (about bite-sized). Freeze in meal-sized plastic bags. ¹Adapted from "Food Pets Die For," by Ann N. Martin Sourse:


  1. This sounds like a grrrreat recipe...both for humans and for pets...super nourishing, indeed!

  2. PS I would name it "Food Pets LIVE For" instead. ;-)
