1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Zucchini
1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Yellow Squash

1 Tbsp Dried Rosemary
8 oz. Brown Rice

- Put all of the ingredients in a 10 quart stainless steel stockpot, ensuring that the water covers all the solids. Bring mixture to a boil then turn down to low and simmer for 2 hours.
- Allow mixture to cool, then de-bone chicken and return meat to the pot. Blend all ingredients into a puree. Use or freeze in individual portions within three days.
