This recipe book has cooked/boneless food recipes and a recipe to make a complimentary vitamin mix to go with the food and serving suggestions: “Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats” by Dr Karen Becker/Beth Taylor. You might also look at the home-cooked area at dogaware.com for some tips.

Liver should be no more than 5% of the meat in their diet. It is high in fat soluable vitamins and can be overdone. And you can definitely get signs of intestinal distress in the stool if the diet is too far off.
So chicken is good and what other kind of meat can they eat everydaytheBCnutMember
I feed mine meats on a rotating basis, turkey one day, beef the next, then fish. I feed as many different proteins as I can find, except chicken, due to dogs with food intolerances. I use goat, lamb, duck, bison, venison, beef, sardines, herring, salmon…whatever variety I can get.
Plus, I make a veggie puree to add to their food and add some different superfoods too.
