I Feed Dottie chicken every day as she loves it,but i also crush some kibble to a powder and put that on the top,chicken hasn't got much in it ,so maybe he was thinking he's not getting enough vitamins etc.

"Extras" can be 25% of the diet without unbalancing the nutrients. So as long as he is eating 75% kibble and 25% chicken, he should be fine. This would include treats and any other extras you are giving.

But your vet is right, just boiled chicken is NOT a complete diet. It is fine as a supplement/treat as long as you don't over do it.
