Today’s Dog Treat Recipe

CRUNCHY CHICKEN AND BROWN RICE TREATS
Did you know:
Chicken is a very good source of lean, high quality protein.
Brown rice is an excellent source of fiber, manganese, selenium and magnesium.
Brown rice is also less likely to cause dog allergy symptoms.
Pumpkin is a fabulous source of fiber for our fur kids.
Pureed pumpkin can help dogs and cats with both constipation and diarrhea.
Parsley is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and enzymes. It acts as a tonic, meaning it helps to boost the body’s overall functioning, clearing the bloodstream and liver of toxins. It also acts as a diuretic, great for dogs who are prone to kidney and bladder infections, incontinence, and arthritis. It can help improve bad breath in dogs!

Crunchy Chicken and Brown Rice Treats
500 grams Chicken Mince (approx. 1 pound of ground Chicken)
1½ cups Oat Flour – see Handy Tip
2 cups brown rice – cooked
1 cup pumpkin – cooked and mashed
½ cup chopped parsley (fresh – if possible)
1 small garlic clove – pressed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 egg – lightly beaten
Handy Tip: Oat Flour can be made by grinding rolled oats in a food processor, blender or vita mixer until it is the consistency of flour.
Preheat oven to 165° C (330° F.) and lightly grease 2 medium size jelly roll pans.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly to combine.
Spread mixture into the greased pans, using a spatula or the back of a desert spoon. Smooth out to about ¼ to ½ inch in thickness. If you don’t mind the mess, use wet hands to spread the mixture, it’s easier.
Bake for 60 minutes (50 minutes if your oven runs hot, ovens vary).
Remove pans from oven and lower oven temperature to 120° C (250° F).
Gently score the Crunchy Chicken and Brown Rice mixture into 1 inch squares, this will make it easier to break the treats apart when cooled.
Return the pans to oven and cook for another 50 minutes.
Remove pans from the oven and turn the squares over using a food slice or turner. If the underneath still appears a little moist, (it depends on the thickness of mixture when you first spread it into the jelly roll pans) return the pans to the oven for another 10 minutes to thoroughly dry them out. The treats should be a golden in color and crisp/dried when done.
Place the Crunchy Chicken and Brown Rice Treats squares on wire cooling rack to cool.
Storage, Refrigeration and Freezing instructions:
Store in zip lock bags or air tight containers for 5 days.
Home-baked dog treats contain no preservatives, so they can mold or spoil the same as home-baked people cookies/cakes do. Other variables, ingredients/moisture content of the treat and climate conditions also determine the storage time.
Refrigeration will prolong the life of home-made dog treats.
Freeze for up to 4 months – Always allow treats to thaw completely before feeding.

Feed these Crunchy Chicken and Brown Rice Treats as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.

Be sure to check the recipe for any known foods or ingredients your pet may be allergic to. If in doubt, check with your Vet.
