Lots of pups have a tough time with chicken---maybe try a lamb & rice.

I also found that mixing water with the food helps a puppy digest it...and slows them down while eating....
SisMorphine wrote:Another way to slow them down while eating . . . don't feed out of the bowl!! For many you can just feed on the floor. OR you can feed on a cookie sheet (for a dog who isn't skittish). This way when they jam their nose down to inhale, the cookie sheet will end up sending their food up into their face . . . not so fun. Again, for a dog who has any sort of fear issues this may make them afraid of food. But for a dog who is sure of himself it may just help with making him eat slower.
But in general I worry about megaesophagus (oh man, I totally spelled that wrong). My friend's pit has it and if she drinks too much she'll puke. So this means if her food hasn't digested yet her food will come up too.
