Food for the Spoiled Rotten Mutt in Your Life

4-8-12 038

Thanks much to our Mom, Rita, for sharing the recipe that keeps her elderly dog going. The human food she makes is amazing – we can say for sure that he’s one lucky dog! Read on:

I just wanted to share a recipe with you that I cook frequently for my still at home family – in the pressure cooker! One ill and aged family member refused food until I started cooking this. Give it a try this winter, it smells delicious. Perhaps in the slow cooker or a dutch oven if you don’t use a pressure cooker.

3 ¾ pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut in small cubes
½ Tablespoon olive oil
1 ½ cups low sodium chicken stock
1 small handful of rice

Sauté chicken in the olive oil over medium heat, add the stock and rice, put the lid on and bring up to pressure in your cooker. Cook for 7 minutes and quickly reduce pressure. (Run cold water over the pot until pressure releases.)

2 stalks celery, washed, cut in small pieces
3 carrots, washed and chopped (don’t peel)
1 potato, washed and cubed (leave the skin on)
1 sweet potato, washed and cubed (leave the skin on)
1 handful frozen peas

Bring the cooker back up to pressure and cook for 4 minutes. Again, use the quick cool method to keep the vegetables from turning to mush.

Serve appropriate amount cooled. This recipe will last for several days in the refrigerator.
