Freeze Dried Gently Cooked Chicken Recipe


The Gently Cooked line is ideal for transitioning your dog from kibble to Shine. And it’s great for pet parents who want all the nutrition of fresh food without going on a raw diet.

Prepared fresh every week in our Santa Fe, New Mexico kitchen and freeze dried for you in 1lb, 2lb and 5lb bags.

We source whole, organic-certified chickens, without added hormones or antibiotics.

Air-chilled poultry is passed through several chambers where cold, purified air is used to cool the meat, resulting in better safety, stronger flavor, and no added moisture.

1lb bag makes 3.25lbs or 6.5 cups. 2lb bag makes 6.5 lbs or 13 cups. 5lb bag makes 16.25lbs or 32.5 cups.

In order to cut down on plastic, we ship our freeze-dried food in a closeable paper bag that is compostable and made from recycled materials. Immediately after receiving, we recommend putting the food in an airtight reusable container. Rehydrated food must be used within 3-5 days to maintain freshness. Wash hands, serving utensils, surfaces and bowls thoroughly. Keep all food products, bowls and utensils away from children. 

To feed, rehydrate the food, mix in some warm water or broth and let it sit for 10- 15 min before serving. For more information on Freeze Dried food as well as a feeding chart, click here.
