  1. 1 cup (125 grams) of broiled or baked chicken
  2. 1/4 cup (40 grams) of steamed broccoli
  3. 1/4 cup (37.5 grams) of steamed carrots
  4. 3 to 4 tablespoons of chicken broth


  1. Preheat the oven and bake 1 chicken breast (or enough to make 1 cup). Alternatively, you can use a rabbit or hen if you don't have chicken.
  2. Steam broccoli and carrots until they are tender.
  3. Using a grinder, blender, or food processor, blend the steamed vegetables and the cooked chicken together until they form a smooth mixture.
  4. Add chicken broth to the mixture to achieve the desired consistency. The amount of broth can vary based on your preference and your cat's preferences.
  5. Allow the food to cool down completely before feeding it to your cat. This is important to ensure it is at a safe temperature for consumption.


It's important to use boneless and skinless chicken for this recipe to ensure it's safe for your cat to consume.
Make sure the chicken is fully cooked and free from any seasonings or spices that could be harmful to cats.
Steaming the broccoli and carrots helps to retain their nutrients and make them easier to blend.
If you don't have a grinder, blender, or food processor, you can try chopping the ingredients finely and mixing them together.
Use chicken broth to adjust the consistency of the food. Start with a smaller amount and add more as needed, depending on your cat's preference.
Allow the food to cool down completely before serving it to your cat to prevent any potential burns.
It's always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian or a professional in feline nutrition to ensure the recipe meets your cat's specific dietary needs.
Remember to introduce new foods gradually to your cat's diet and monitor their response to ensure they tolerate it well.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and use them within a few days.
