Chicken Dog Treats Recipe
There are many different ways you can make homemade chicken dog treats. You can start with actual chicken meat from the breast. Or, you can start with broth or pureed chicken baby food like this recipe.
As long as you are checking the ingredients, using baby food is a simple way to save time cooking, cutting, and pureeing the chicken yourself.
If you don’t have chicken baby food, you can use turkey or even beef. Just be sure to check the ingredients to make sure you are only using single-ingredient baby food.
It doesn’t really matter what brand or what stage baby food you use. As long as you have the right amount of baby food, this chicken dog treats recipe will turn out fine and your puppy will enjoy it.
What do you need to make this recipe?
If you have a larger dog, you can use a larger-sized mold. Tiny dogs will only need a small treat, so you can use something smaller.
How do you make chicken dog treats?
You will basically need to puree all of the ingredients in the blender. Then, pour the ingredients into a dog treat mold and allow them to freeze.
When they’re done, feed your dog one or two depending on their size.
Can you use regular flour in dog treats?
You can yes. This recipe uses rice flour because some dogs have gluten allergies that cause itching. To be safe, some people choose to use gluten-free flour.
Homemade chicken dog training treats
If you want to use these as training treats, look for the smallest mold that you can find. Dog training treats are a great way to encourage your dog to have good behavior. But, you want them to be very small so that they don’t eat too many.
Benefits of starting with baby food
- Whole ingredients
- Less mess
- Quicker to make
- No leftovers
I love making chicken dog treats but some of the recipes want you to roll out the dough and cut out pieces with a cookie-cutter. I just don’t always have time for that. This is an easy alternative your dog will appreciate.
How to store leftovers
Just keep the leftovers in a plastic zip-top freezer bag and use them up within a month. Or you can store them in the freezer in a container with a tightly fitting lid.
Chicken dog treats recipe serving tips
Depending on the size of your dog and the size of the mold you use, you can feed them one or two at a time. Don’t just place the treats in their doggie dish or they will melt.

- 1/2 Cup Rice Flour (or you can grind white rice in a grinder to make flour)
- 1 Jar Chicken Baby Food (2.5 oz jar)
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Diced Carrots
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Peas
- Add ingredients to the blender but save about 1/4 each of the peas and carrots. I do this to give the pops a little texture however if you are not worried about texture then you can add them all in.
- Run the blender until fully blended.
- Place molds on a cookie sheet and add some peas and carrots to each of the spaces.
- Fill each space with the blended mixture pouring it over the peas and carrots.
- Place the molds in the freezer for a minimum of two hours until fully frozen.
