    When I needed to make a bland diet like this for an ill dog ... I boiled the chicken and made the rice on the stove in plain water then mixed the two. It's best to keep this diet as bland as possible whether you are feeding it for digestive or allergy purposes.

    Bear in mind this is not a diet you can keep your dog for any length of time as it is lacks proper nutrition. But it is OK for a short time (no more than a week) to help with digestive problems.

    If you are using this diet as an elimination diet to sort out allergies then you'll need to keep the dog on it longer and supplement with vitamins.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have never tried this, but looks like you could just omit the veggies until his tummy is better. http://dogcare.dailypuppy.com/fix-ch...-pot-1408.html

    I've had to do this for my fur babies also. I just took the fat off the chicken and sliced a chicken breast in to tenders then heated in a non-stick skillet no seasoning. Followed directions for rice in micro wave. Rice gets really hot because of starch and stays hot for a while. Took chicken after cooking and diced. Mixed with rice and done. You have to be really careful if you use chicken broth or stock. Needs to be fat-free. It can be really rich (upset tummy) and you don't want that. Took me all of about 10 minutes. On another note I do this for myself for a quick lunch when I want my version of stir fry,

    I should mention here that if the furbaby is a feline, they can't have onion. Most store bought broths will have onion in them. TEchnically dogs shouldn't either, but it doesn't tend to be as detrimental to them (our dog has stolen onions we've dropped before we could pick them up and she's OK), cats can get a type of anemia from the onions.

    First off, when my dog is sick I use Baby Rice. It dissolves easily in water or broth. You don't have to cook it and you can make it the consistency that you want. I always keep a box handy if my dog gets sick I don't have to worry about cooking anything. I also keep a box of low sodium chicken broth on hand as that always makes it more palatable.

    I have done rice in the slow cooker for myself. It comes out beautifully. Again, I use chicken broth as the liquid and it takes about 2-3 hours on high. The time will depend a lot on your cooker. Here is where I found out how to do it:http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2008...t-as-rice.html

    I also use the slow cooker for chicken. Usually, I just put a whole chicken in. You don't need any liquid. It will make its own broth. When it is done, I just dispose of the skin and bones, skim the fat off the broth, and go from there.

    If anyone is interested my breadmaker has instructions for cooking rice in it. I tried it and it worked fine. Check your breadmaker manual.

    I have a GSD with an absorption problem and she is on a diet of chicken and rice, or chicken and pasta or white fish with either rice or pasta with a powdered enzyme added. I boil up the chicken till cooked, remove the chicken and then cook the rice in the stock left from the chicken. I use a large stock pot half full of water to cook the chicken pieces and then cook a kilo of rice at a time in the stock until the stock has been absorbed.

    I agree with everyone on the suggestion of using the m.wave. This is my experience of cooking Chicken and Rice in the crockpot.
    Place chicken in the crockpot and season to taste. Cook until the chicken is a little more than half done--fork tender.
    Cook Rice seperately until about half done--then drain and rinse. Spoon on top of Chicken and let cook on High about another hour or so.
    Our family always liked this dish.
    In the oven or a low setting on the m.wave; use similar method as above, but be sure the setting is about 6-7.
    Enjoy!
    Mariah.
    Place Rice on top of Chicken and season or adjust seasonings. Let cook about 1 and 1/2 hrs. Have the lid on
    Have a wonderful Quilting Day, make it your way!

    My Chihuahua has a sensitive stomach and I've tried almost every thing from Hills Science Diet to cooking for her at home. I tried cooking rice in a crock pot - left it too high too long and guess what I had when I got home! Rice MUSH. LOL After that I just cooked it on the stove top and added cooked ground beef and either english peas or green beans and and sometimes diced raw sweet potatoes. She loves raw sweet potatoes and/or carrots. I did find out that she doesn't do well on chicken. go figure.
