Chicken Broth Dog Biscuit

Chicken Broth Dog Biscuit

A chicken broth dog biscuit recipe is an all around flexible treat to make for your dog. With the enticing aroma and flavor of chicken, you can include puréed vegetables for added nutrition, or use this recipe as a base dog biscuit for decorating with dog treat icing. But there's no need to mix it up — these treats are a great snack on their own for dogs and humans, alike.

Notes

Chicken Dog Treats

I first made these chicken treats way back in 2011, long before I knew how obsessed I would be with my someday dog. I made them for my aunt's dog Mitzi and rather than eat them, she basically went around and buried them throughout the house.

I wasn't super offended though because Mitzi is a one treat kinda girl and doesn't really believe that variety is the spice of life.

My dog Winnie, however, is a whole other story. She's picky to the extreme, but has several favorite treats in her arsenal and is always looking to expand her options. To say she's treat motivated is the understatement of the year and yes, I am a ridiculous enabler and spoil her to no end.

So, I decided to remake these chicken treats for her to see if she'd be a fan. Fingers crossed.

Verdict: Oh yes. She is very much a fan. If you make them, I hope your dog is, too!


Quick and Easy Dog Biscuit Recipe

Only 3 ingredients … it doesn’t get any easier than this, folks!

This was the very first DIY dog treat I ever made for my pups. To say they loved it would be an understatement! The recipe is actually a spinoff on one of Cesar Millan’s recipes. I changed up the ingredients, making it a bit simpler and healthier.

I decided it was time to start making my dogs homemade snacks after taking a magnifying lens to their store-bought treat bags. Processed. Full of preservatives. Loaded with artificial coloring and ingredients I couldn’t pronounce. I knew something needed to change.

Since I first made this quick and easy dog biscuit recipe, I’ve done a lot of experimenting. While this is a great starter recipe (since it’s made from only 3 ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen right now), don’t forget to scroll through my other recipes. I make everything from gluten-free snacks to frozen treats to help your pooch beat the heat!

A Little About This Recipe

Once you mix all of your ingredients together (oats, homemade chicken broth or water, and an egg), you will use your hands to form a dough ball. Note: Your dough ball will be sticky! If you’ve ever worked with a sticky dough before, you know it can get a bit messy at times. That’s why, to make the dough easier to work with, I let mine sit for 15 minutes. This allowed the dough to dry out a bit. If you use a rolling pin and cookie cutter to shape your treats, you might also want to sprinkle a little oat flour on your countertop (or whatever surface you’re spreading your dough onto), as well as on top of the dough ball before you begin rolling it flat.


Apple Carrot Dog Treats

Looking for a simple recipe to make some dog treats? This combination of apples with carrots is extremely easy to make and you can also store the excess treats in the refrigerator. The mentioned quantity of ingredients is for 20 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cups grated carrots
  • 1 ¼ cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated apple
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix carrots, oats, and apple together in a large bowl. Whisk peanut butter and eggs until thoroughly combined in a second bowl. Pour into the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Drop 1 ½ tablespoon of batter onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each treat with your hands until they are 1/2-inch thick.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until treats are firm to the touch and begin to brown on the bottom (15 to 20 minutes). Allow them to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
