Have you ever read the ingredients list on your dog food or your dog treats? It’s probably at least 2 inches long and contains at least 5 things you can’t pronounce. That’s not what I would consider a “treat”. I love my pups, and want them to live long, healthy lives so I started looking around for the best deal on healthy treats.
1/2 lb shredded chicken (1-2 breasts)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons oil (olive or vegetable)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together shredded chicken, flour, and cornmeal. In a small bowl, mix together chicken broth, oil, and egg. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until combined (I just use my hands). Lightly dust a clean, dry work surface with whole wheat flour (white flour is bad for dogs). Working in sections, roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes in the dough, and place the treats on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 18- 23 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cool flat surface to cool completely.
*These treats are preservative- free, so keep them in an air tight container and store them in the fridge. They also freeze really well.
