View Full Version : making your own chicken treats?

14th August 2011, 04:24 PM
Ok so today is training class. I want to make homemade chicken treats. I have boneless skinless chicken breasts and bonless skinless thighs. Do I boil them or bake them? What spices if any do I put on it? I don't want them to be messy as we will not have napkins with us. What is the best way to go about this with what I have in my kitchen?
Thank you

Boil them until cooked, no spices but you can add a clove of garlic to the water.

Then cut into small pieces, and bake at about 130C for around 1hr 20 mins until they feel hard and dry. I usually leave them in there overnight to dry out thoroughly.

They shouldn't be greasy, and will keep for ages in an air tight container.

Dried liver is brilliant too - Rupert's Fund recipe book has lots of wonderful ideas and recipes for treats etc

Thank you. I decided on thighs. I put them in water with a little chicken broth. I will bake them next. Unfortunately I don't have that long to dry overnight.

Go to Dogaware.com and go to their Dog Treats area. They have great recipes. My dog's favorite are those little oyster soup crackers with a little butter and parmesean cheese baked at 350 degree oven until crispy. He loves them and they last forever. I even put them in my soup they are so good.:cool:

Thank you for the link. I will check it out!
We used the chicken today but I think it was too bland for him because he did not have the WOW face. So just using a little chicken broth in the water did not do it, we will have to give garlic a try next time. I can't wait to see whats in the link.
