How Much Boiled Chicken to Feed Cats
How much boiled chicken is enough to feed a cat? If you’ve ever fed it to your cat, then you might be interested in this guide because I assume you want to give them the best and healthiest diet! With that in mind, let’s dive right into this guide.
How much boiled chicken to feed cats really depends on the weight of your cat, and also what type of food it normally eats.

For example, if your cat is an average-sized cat, which weighs around 10 pounds, you could probably give it 1/2 cup of boiled chicken every day. But if you have a particularly small or large cat, you’d need to adjust this amount accordingly.
Same goes for the type of food your cat usually eats—if it usually eats raw (which you should probably consider switching away from), then it likely needs more protein than a cat that is eating a more balanced, dry kibble product. If this isn’t the case for your cat, then ½ cup is probably fine!
If you’re a cat owner, you probably already know that cats love to eat. And if you’re like most cat owners, you also know that a cat’s favorite food is probably whatever it is that you’re eating—whether it’s steak or cereal, they’ll do their best to get a taste of it.
Can I Feed My Cat Boiled Chicken Everyday?
Well, the short answer is yes, you can feed your cat boiled chicken every day.
Cats are carnivores and they need meat. The problem is that they don’t get everything they need from just one source of protein.
So while it’s okay to feed your cat boiled chicken every day, or any other kind of meat for that matter, you should also be feeding them other proteins as well.
That doesn’t mean nightly chicken-and-steak dinners; it just means feeding them a balanced diet of proteins from different sources to ensure that they are getting all the nutrients they need.
All in all, if you’re feeding your cat boiled chicken every day and you’re worried about their nutritional needs, try supplementing their diet with some other kinds of meat once or twice a week.
Make sure the meat is fully cooked (no raw chicken!) and free of spices or seasonings before serving it to your feline friend.
