How long to boil chicken for dog?
Most recipes are for boiling whole chickens. When you cook chicken breast, you can usually keep the meat from drying out (and make it juicier) by first poaching it. Boil for 5 minutes, cool in ice-cold water, and then drn.
How long to boil a whole chicken depends on what size chicken you're cooking. The rule of thumb is that for a large chicken, 10 minutes is long enough to boil the breasts and wings and 10 minutes longer to cook the thighs. If you're cooking a smaller chicken, you may have to cook it for a little longer.
Most recipes have some sort of measurement to boil the chicken in. I think 10 minutes is too long, but maybe 15. The general rule is to boil it in less time than it takes to simmer, so the legs don't cook too much before the breasts.
I'd suggest you start out cooking the breasts first and then add the legs and wings. Then make sure the breasts are well cooked before moving on to the rest of the bird. The breast meat should still have some pink color on it. That means that it's close to being done, but not quite cooked all the way through. If you don't finish cooking the breasts, the breast meat might be dry when you cut it.
If you don't like to eat dark meat, you can skip the legs and wings. The wings may be a little tough, but they have a lot of flavor. They are the part that most dogs like.
I agree with @chocolate's answer: it's better to poach first, then boil.
If your goal is to be able to cook the breast without it drying out, then I think it's OK to boil it as long as you know the meat is properly cooked. I'd use a medium heat and keep an eye on it so it's not overcooked. Then, take the meat out and let it cool. Then put it in the fridge. If you're lucky, the breast will still be hot when you eat it, but if you're not, it'll be nice and cold.
I've cooked chicken breasts that were about an inch thick. I think that's what you're looking for. They're the "lighter" meat, and the tenderest.
Of course, there's nothing wrong with regular chicken breast, too.
