Doggy Dumplings

Make your own dog treat at home with the recipe included here. These turn out as a cross between a dumpling and a biscuit. This recipe makes about two dozen treats and can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Ingredients

1 cup rice flour

1/4 cup + 1 tbs of Greek yogurt (about half a single serving, 5.3 oz container)

1 cup shredded chicken

1 egg

1/3 cup water (possibly more, depending on the flour)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a baking tray or cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and spray with a nonstick cooking spray like canola oil, coconut oil or olive oil

Whisk egg and yogurt together in a bowl, then add shredded chicken and flour. Mix together. You will end up with a pasty, dry mix at this point with the chicken shreds coats in the flour, yogurt, and egg

Now add water and mix. Let sit for a minute so the flour absorbs the water. You should end up with a slightly clumpy, doughy mixture that holds its shape. If your mixture seems too dry, add more water, a tablespoon at a time

Drop small spoonfuls of mixture in rows onto the tray. You don’t need to leave much space between as these will not rise. These should be about the size of two grapes

Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes then allow to cool before offering one to your pup! You’ll know they’re done when the outside turns slightly golden and has formed a crust

Pro Tips

Best to use plain chicken and not seasoned or sauced. Also, dispose of any chicken bones and skin

Substitute the egg for ¼ cup canned pumpkin, mashed banana, or baked sweet potato, but the dumplings will turn out flatter and softer

For extras flavor, substitute water for chicken or beef broth

Other flours like wheat or oat flour also work well in place of rice flour

Avoid using avocado or nut oils to coat your baking tray as these can be harmful to your pup

Make smaller treats (single-grape sized) and cut baking time to 10-12 minutes

Remember, it’s not necessary to add any spices, salt, or baking soda to these as the dogs love them plain and they’re healthier for them that way!
