Honestly, if your only concern regarding raw is that he eat it in a timely manner, you are probably worrying needlessly. Most dogs are pretty darn excited to get "real" food, and consume it eagerly. Depending upon the complexity of the meal (a large RMB may take awhile to finish), mealtimes may last anywhere from five minutes to a half hour or so. Surely there is a half hour somewhere in your day that you could devote to Mason's meals?
I don't like to push raw on anyone that is not keen on it, but in this case it seems your only concern may be the time element, so I think it's worth bringing up. With raw, you can completely control what Mason is eating, and the "ingredient list" is strikingly simple: chicken, beef, pork, etc.
Now, I know you said Mason is allergic to chicken, but the good news is that he may NOT be allergic to chicken in its unadulterated form. Many dogs that are allergic to an ingredient in commercial or home cooked food are not allergic to it in its raw state.
Anyway, if you are interested, come on over to the raw forum and ask some questions!
