Personally, I would find a really good quality kibble and feed that for now. There are some really great kibble options out there that do an excellent job at supplying all the nutrients dogs need without all the grains, fillers, and cheap ingredients that the low-grade foods contain. I have a tough enough time figuring out how to create a balanced diet for my human family--I'd be afraid that if I just started homecooking for my dogs that I would miss something and my dogs would suffer.
If you truely are interested in homecooking, you can research homecooking for your dog. I don't homecook for my dogs, but I do think that boiled chicken, rice and vegetables isn't necessarily going to offer a balanced diet with the right proportions of all the minerals, vitamins, nutrients that your dog needs. Different veggies supply different nutrients. Different cuts of meat and organs supply different nutrients. You can use commercial supplements or supplement a basic homecooked diet by incorporating a variety of whole foods.
Lots of people homecook for their dogs and that is a fine choice, but read up on it first so you know you are doing it correctly and in the meantime, definitely switch to a higher-quality kibble.
