Do you think a strong blender can handle crushing raw chicken backs without meat? (RAW Diet)?

I am switching my dogs to raw and just need a little bit of help. I will be giving recreational bones whole, but for the meals, I will be grinding the bones, as instructed by a Vet for my dogs.
So I'm wondering if you think a blender, a strong one, almost 1 horsepower will be able to crush chicken backs. I found a place I can buy them cheap with the bone removed.

I have a whole recipe to add meat,organs, and other stuff like fish oil, and kelp to it but just wondered if chicken backs without meat are weak and easy to crush.

Thanks for your help :)

Most good blenders will handle back bones, but need a liquid to get it to the blades. If you add a cup of broth, it should chop the bones, but it will be slushy..However, dogs would love the slush.

If your blender is recommended for ice, it will handle soft bone.

Quick & kid friendly chicken recipes?

I am making chicken for dinner tomorrow night and trying to decide what kind to make...I need kid friendly dishes (and cannot use cream soup mixes because of dairy free diet) I usually make either of the two..

1 - Chicken w/ tomatoe sauce & soy mozzerella Cheese (chicken parmigian)
2- Chicken & sliced muchrooms with Soy mozzerella cheese melted

My 6 year old and I are getting tired of those dishes and need some simple recipes. They cannot be spicy though! And hopefully won't take long to put together and cook (preferred cooking method is baking in oven)

Thanks in advance
