|Sassy ate a chicken and rice diet for 3.5 years. It wasn't balanced for healthy dogs as she was ill and needed a different nutrient profile. I could have made it balanced with a bit of beef liver, fish oil, bone meal+egg shell, a multi mineral supplement and a vitamin supplement if she had to be on chicken and rice and was a healthy dog. See Sedona's thread - all the info is there.
If your dog is healthy there are more nutritious meats to feed. If you chose a boneless meat then you wouldn't have all the work and wasted money boning the chicken. Lean hamburger and rice maybe? Keep it to a minimum of half meat, half cooked rice+veggies and more meat is better. The most important addition is calcium, add 1/2 tsp of powdered eggshell per pound of food.
Here are a couple of resources for you.
In particular this one. If I had to cook for Max I would do this.
