Not a food recommendation, but would HIGHLY recommend this probiotic chew from Amazon. My dog thinks they are a treat and it solidified her poop in about 3 days.

The chicken and rice is good but you need to start out slow on the chicken some dogs don’t tolerate that at all my dogs tolerate it they just don’t like it they’ll eat it if I don’t give him anything else all day I cook for my dogs they get beef or chicken probably once every couple months I slide in pork but there’s always a risk of diarrhea from that but they get beef and vegetables everyday chicken sometimes

My puppy had issues & I kept taking her to the vet. Nothing worked & I was doing chicken/rice & then hamburger/rice , pumpkin etc. Turns out she doesn’t do well with chicken I was buying all this chicken/rice kibble in different brands & couldn’t figure it out. ( process of elimination) , but almost everything I read the ingredients of had some kind of chicken flavoring, meal etc. I’m giving her pre & pro biotic & still trying different foods . Currently on salmon . Good luck!!
