Chicken and Mashed Bustatoes


Alicia adapted this recipe is adapted from "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats" and it's formulated for cats with renal failure.

The original recipe calls for white rice, which while being very easy to digest, is pretty barren of natural vitamins and nutrients.  Alicia wanted to see if Sheba would eat a more natural, whole source of starch.  Luckily, Sheba wolfs this food down, it agrees with her stomach, and it's fast and easy to prepare (especially with a pressure cooker).


Makes enough for one week.

about 1 1/3 cups organic chicken: breasts, thighs, any combination of parts as long as the total meat off the bones equals this amount.
4 cups quartered Yukon Gold organic potatoes
1 clove garlic, smashed (optional)
one bunch fresh parsely (optional)
4 organic eggs
2 tbs cold pressed organic safflower oil
1/8 tsp sea salt
1.5 teaspoons steamed bone meal
5,000 IU Vitamin A
2,000 mg taurine
50 mg Vitamin B complex
2500 mg Vitamin C

Load the chicken, potatoes, garlic and parsely in a pressure cooker or a large saucepan.  Cover with water (or fill to the appropriate mark in the pressure cooker) and bring to a simmer (or bring to pressure).  Cook until the potatoes are tender (or about 8 minutes under pressure). Fish the potatoes out of the broth with a slotted spoon into a bowl, and set the chicken parts aside to cool slightly.  Reserve the cooking liquid, but discard the garlic and parsely.

Mash the potatoes with about 1/4 cup of the cooking broth.  Break the eggs into a seperate bowl and beat them together with all the bone meal and vitamins to form a gross-looking healthy slurry.  Then combine the egg mixture with the potatoes, the salt and the safflower oil and mix well.

Seperate the chicken meat from the bones and finely chop or shred.  Stir the meat into the egg/potato mixture, or put it all together for a couple of spins in a food processor.  Add a little more of the cooking liquid if neccessary so the food's good and mushy.

Serve warm, with a little bit of healthy powder sprinkled on top.
