No its not a good Idea to fed raw chicken, your dog can get infection. Its better to boil and you can add 1-2 garlic bud while boiling and remove it before feeding.

Also dont feed the bones as they are soft bone and any small sharp pieces could damage the esophagus or intestine.

u can feed raw chicken and meat to your dogs there is no problem in that infact feeding raw is good for the dental hygiene for ur dogs they are in trend these days , the BARF diet for dogs check out on the internet, and many people do feed dogs raw meat and chicken , just remember to wash it properly , and bones are necessary for a dogs skull bones and jaw muscles The chewing and tearing action is also believed to strengthen the jaw, neck and shoulder muscles, keep the digestive juice flowing and boost the neurological and immune system .just feed them raw never boil the bones before feeding as after boiling they break up into sharp pieces.

nikhil is right and you can feed raw chicken and it wont be any problem for dogs. I am feeding raw chicken for my lab for past eight months and i feel this is better than any premiun packaged food.

I fully endorse the above views from Nikhil and Kamal. Dogs have a biological system wherein their body can successfuly pass the bacteria through their body without them getting infected. Boiling the food is an option for those who're not comfortable feeding raw to their dogs.
While it's ok to feed boiled meat, it's recommended to remove the bones from the meat as they can potentially damage the throat or intestines of the dog. It's better to buy boneless from the market as that will save your time finding and removing bones.
The below articles have removed many doubts about BARF/PMD from my mind, yet I feel it's not in our culture to feed raw meet to our dogs. Like ourself, we'd even like our animals to have cooked food. Here, I'm talking about culture where I'm living in. If you culture permits, go for BARF/PMD as one couldn't have offered a better diet to their dogs than BARF/PMD.
Read the below articles thoroughly and then considerate.

there is no doubt a dog can process raw meat and other bacteria. But to be on a safe side it is always good to boil meat.

A wild animal hunts for their food and they eat whlie they are fresh and warm. As soon a prey is dead the bacteria starts the decomposition process within half an hour.
I will not recomended to give unprocessed meat.
I always prefer to boil water and put the meat at least for 5-10 min in the boiled water.

But again its about choice. Personally I will recomend to at least wash the meat in hot water.
For me precaution is better than cure.

Logically there is a difference. You dog is not hunting for the food.

As long your dog is healthy nothing else matter.

I have been feeding my boxer PMR model for the past 3 months. I clean the raw meet with turmeric powder and crystal salt. Rinse it with water throughly. I freeze the meat for more than 10 hrs and feed him after thawing. I have seen many positive results through raw feeding.

@ Gopal, I remember the days when I used to seek your advice on what dog breed I should go for. Your advice came handy and I now own a Labrador about 7.5 month old. I was in touch with you during the beginning of January but then found you suddenly disappearing from the blog. Good to see you again.
