Peanut Chicken Chunk Dog Treat Recipe

This is Bobby, our 4 month old Shiba Inu (and he’s an energetic little guy). I’ve been feeling like a bad father, having skipped his puppy training class this morning (for a variety of reasons). I decided to spend a ‘father/son’ day with Bobby instead.

I’ve been reading up on how to make dog biscuits and realized it’s not too complicated once you know which ingredients should *not* be used. Bobby loves peanut butter and smoked chicken jerky, so I decided to combine his favorite tastes into a nice little biscuit.

Peanut Chicken Chunk Treats Recipe

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup wheat germ
1 cup chicken broth (low sodium, 0 fat)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chopped chicken jerky (less than a 1/2″ size)

Mix the ingredients thoroughly, until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough for 1-2 minutes, then roll 1/4″ thick. The chicken chunks may make this a little difficult if you’ve made them too big. I didn’t have a small cookie cutter so I used a shot glass to make 1 1/4″ circles in the dough then transferred to a cookie sheet. I placed a small piece of jerky on top of each treat. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour, then turn off oven and let set for another 30-60 minutes until completely dry.

I didn’t add any salt and I used chicken broth with low sodium. I’ve noticed that chicken jerky can often have plenty of additives. I chose a brand which is all natural and is just smoked chicken breast … no added flavorings or any chemicals. Bobby loves them — Smokehouse 85808 Chicken Breast Tenders 16oz Reseal Bag

As you can see, Bobby had a hard time waiting for the baking process to complete. He waited patiently, but eventually took a nap. When the treats cooled, he eagerly jumped and down in order to be the first one to taste test them (I’ll admit, I’m tempted to take a bite … just to see what they taste like). The treats are very hard so he does have to work a bit to break them up. He gobbled one down and seemed to love it!
