DIY Feed My Paws Recipe: Low Protein Chicken Patties

Recipes

Hi everyone!

Today we have a quick and easy low-protein Chicken Patties recipe :) This recipe was actually inspired by my dear old man Skotch who's 14 1/2 years old now! He recently went for his annual checkup and we found out that he needs less protein in his diet to keep his kidneys and liver from being too taxed, so this (amongst many other) recipes was born. If you have a senior pup (age ~8 and above), it's a good idea to start bringing them regular, annual health checkups. That way you'll know how best to maintain their health as they get older :)

For both Skotch and Hoovy (who's 9), I'm lowering the amount of protein they consume. I do this by substituting meat with other lower protein items such as tofu, egg, or cheese (cottage cheese is said to be the best option!). You can also increase the amount of veggies they eat. You can just substitute small amounts, there's no need to swap everything out as dogs still need their protein.

If you have a senior pup and would like more of such recipes, leave me a comment on YouTube or Instagram! :)

INGREDIENTS LIST:

  • 230g Minced Chicken (you can swap this for any kind of minced meat)
  • 100g Pumpkin
  • 1 large stalk Kale (or any other dark, leafy green such as spinach)
  • 50g Tofu*
  • 1 tablespoon Cheese (this is optional, but I find that trying to get dogs to eat more veggies, cheese is always a good start as they tend to love it! Another option would be sardines)

*Why tofu? Compared to meat, tofu is lower in protein, and high in calcium.

Step 1: Finely chop, or use a food processor to grate pumpkin and kale. If you don't have a food processor, don't worry, just chop everything into tiny pieces. As I cook often (and am always experimenting with different recipes), a food processor is a great investment and major time-saver!!

Step 2: Mix together pumpkin, kale, minced meat, tofu, and cheese.

Step 3: Form little patties. The patties I formed were about 4cm in diameter and about 1cm thick. Small patties cook much faster and evenly :)

Step 4: Heat up your non-stick pan till it's really hot. If you don't have a non stick pan, you can bake these in the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degrees celsius, or use an air fryer (same temperature and timing as the oven). Once your pan is hot, place patties in. If you notice in the video, I did them in a clockwise order. This just makes it much easier to know when to flip each one (even cooking time) as opposed to randomly flipping them haha. Let them cook for approximately 2 minutes.

Step 5: After 2 minutes, flip them over. Then let them cook for another 1 minute or so.

Step 6: Add 5 tablespoons of water. Cover your pan and let cook for about 5 minutes. You can omit this step if you're using an oven or air fryer.

Step 7: It's ready to serve!

You can store these in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze them for up to a month :)
