Easy Home Cooked Dog Food

easy home cooked dog food recipe

This easy home cooked dog food recipe uses chicken and turkey as the protein sources. The best part of making homemade dog food is that you can substitute ingredients if you’d like (such as exchanging chicken with beef or venison). So if your dog is allergic to chicken or just prefers a different meat, feel free to use something else instead.


  • 3 lb. boneless chicken thighs
  • 3 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (chopped)
  • 8 ounces frozen spinach
  • 8 ounces chopped carrots
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries


Add the chicken thighs and ground turkey to the slow cooker. Cover the meat with water. Add the sweet potatoes, spinach, carrots and blueberries on top of the meat. Cover and cook on ‘Low’ for 6 hours.

If you work outside the home, this recipe is a great alternative to meals that you have to fix daily. You can put the ingredients in the slow cooker before you leave for work, and by the time you get home Fido’s food will be ready. Plus, you can make the food in bulk so you only have to cook once a week or so.

As soon as this chicken and turkey dog food dish has cooled, you can feed it to your pooch. You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days or freeze them and they’ll keep for up to 3 months.
