How to boil chicken for a cat

Updated April 17, 2017

Many cat owners consider their pets to be a member of the family. And, like their human counterparts, they like to give cat special attention and treats to make them happy. Sometimes it's also done for the cat's health. If your cat has recently been ill with an intestinal problem, feeding the cat boiled chicken instead of the usual cat food might perk him up. A common vet's recommendation is to exclusively feed your cat boiled chicken for up to one week. But this should only be temporary as a regular diet of boiled chicken may lead to nutritional deficiencies.

  1. Place the chicken breast in a pan and cover it with water. Bring the water to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cook for approximately 30 minutes, or until the inner flesh of the chicken breast is no longer pink.

  2. Drain the chicken in a colander and allow the meat to cool so that it can be handled. Place the chicken breast on a cutting board and cut the chicken into small chunks.

  3. Feed the boiled chicken to your cat when the meat is still slightly warm. The chicken may also be stored in the fridge for up to three days for later use.
