Rachael Ray’s Dinner For You and Your Cat #NutrishforCats Giveaway

Rachael Ray’s Dinner for You and Your Cat

Our friends from Rachael Ray’s Nutrish for Cats sent us a Dinner for Two package. Right away, Annie was interested in finding out what was inside the brown paper bag.

Both Annie and I were happy to find not only Nutrish for Cats but also two great recipes straight from Rachael Ray’s kitchen for Paul and me too.  We chose to prepare the Teriyaki Chicken with Brown Whole Grain Rice for our dinner and selected the Real Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe with an appetizer of Ocean Fish & Chicken Catch-iatore for Annie, Eddie and Mercy.

Nutrish dinner for you and your cat

Both our meal and the cats meal are made with simple wholesome ingredients.  Rachael Ray’s Nutrish for Cats foods are made with real meat like chicken or fish and the high quality protein is always the first ingredient. There are no artificial flavors or preservatives and no meat by-products.

Since Rachael Ray Nutrish launched in 2008, proceeds from sales have raised more than $6 million for Rachael’s Rescue, which helps animals in need.  Your cats will love the  taste and you will love the good work Nutrish is doing to help rescue animals.

Dinner time preparations began, and I gathered our serving dish, cutlery, dishes and the cats’ dishes too.

Cook and Cats in the Kitchen

When I began to cook the sauce, it smelled wonderful!  It wasn’t long until not only were Annie, Eddie and Mercy supervising my cooking, but Paul came into the kitchen and said something smells great!

Annie was super interested in the chicken preparation.

Mercy kept moving a little closer too.

But it was Eddie that was first to pounce when dinner was served.

It didn’t take Mercy long to join Eddie at the dish.

After all three cats were full and happy it was time for their after dinner entertainment.  Annie was the first to play with the Cosmic Cat Big Ol Catnip Sack that our friends from Nutrish sent in the gift bag while Eddie and Mercy attacked the paper bag.

Then it was our turn to enjoy the Teriyaki Chicken with  Brown Whole Grain  Rice we prepared for our dinner.  The recipe is delicious and I am sharing it with you here.

From the Kitchen of Rachael Ray

Rachael Ray's Teriyaki Chicken


For the rice:

  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup brown whole grain rice

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • About 1/3 cup Tamari or soy sauce
  • About 3 Tablespoons Mirin (rice wine)
  • About 3 Tablespoons dry sherry
  • About 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 thin slices fresh ginger root
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed.

For the chicken:

  • 2 Tablespoons high-temperature cooking oil such as peanut or canola
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Sea salt and coarse black pepper
  • 2 mild frying peppers, such as cubanelle or Anaheim, seeded and cut into thin strips.
  • 1 bunch scallions, cut into 2 inch pieces.


  • In a small pot, bring the stock and butter to low boil. Stir in the rice and cover; reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook according to the package directions.
  • Place the sauce ingredients in another small pot and bring to a boil. Let reduce by about half, 15 minutes at medium heat, at a low boil.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with light salt and pepper to your liking. Cook for 8-9 minutes, turning occasionally; remove.  Add the peppers and stir for 2-3 minutes, but let them remain tender-crisp. Add the scallions and toss for 1 minutes more; remove from the heat.
  • Slice the chicken across the breasts into 1/2 inch thick pieces.
  • Arrange the rice on plates or in shallow bowls and top with the peppers, scallions and chicken.  Drizzle the sauce evenly over the chicken and rice, then serve.

    Definitely the chicken. I have 4 cats and none of them like salmon, they are more into tuna. The teriyaki chicken sounds really really good – it’s like the first recipe I’ve seen when you make the teriyaki yourself instead of just from a bottle. The cats would get the wet food as I’m trying to get them off of dry food.
