I don't know how many make boiled chicken for supper as it leaves a lot to be desired unless you're making soup. Even my cats look at boiled chicken like "We know you can cook tastier stuff than this".
I do it for mine sometimes. There are evenings that Wickett just doesn't seem to want to eat but adding a dash of cat nip seems to help. Of course, you could also try different kinds of canned cat food. Chicken would work too but if you want to switch him to canned he might get spoiled on chicken and snub canned food.
