You can use white or dark meat or ground chicken. Cook the chicken by boiling it in a little water. It is important that all bones are removed from the cooked chicken. Cooked bones can splinter if digested and damage the stomach and intestine.
The chicken is cooked when the juices inside run clear.
Let the chicken cool than dice the chicken into bit size chunks. Shredding it is also fine.
Add fresh or frozen peas to the cooked meat. The heat will lightly cook the peas. Rinse the asparagus under running water.
Place asparagus in a saucepan and cover with a few inches of water in a saucepan. When the water starts to boil, cook for 5 minutes.
If you wish, use a microwave-safe cooking dish to boil asparagus in the microwave. Fill the cooking dish with 1/4 cup water, then add the spears and place the lid on the dish. Cook the asparagus on your microwave oven’s high power setting for 3 minutes, then open the door and stir. Finish cooking until the spears are just barely tender, about 3 to 4 more minutes
Chop asparagus to small bite sizes.
When the meat and veggies are cool to touch you can add the Azestfor nutritional supplements.
Heat destroys the potency of vitamins.

The recipe can be prepared in large batches and frozen. It will keep for up to a year in the freezer, or one week in the fridge. Freezing vitamins preserves their potency. I would recommend portioning the food into meal size servings appropriate for your dog before freezing it. To defrost a frozen meal – put it in the fridge overnight.
If you want to add the Azestfor Homemade Dog Food Vitamins just before serving you would add 1 1/3 teaspoons per cup of food.
We suggest dividing the daily amount into two servings, one in the morning and one in the evening. Every dog’s nutritional requirements are a little bit different due to age & amount of exercise. If your dog is losing weight, increase food by 1/4 cup a day, if they are gaining weight reduce accordingly.Weight of Dog
