Recipe: Chicken Liver Dog Treat Squares

Pin It


I was going to call this recipe something cute like “Which Came First? The Chicken Liver or the Egg?” but decided that might be pushing the envelope…or the shell…

This recipe is super easy to make and VERY popular with our pooches! With a simple list of ingredients–just chicken, chicken liver, and eggs–this recipe takes only a few minutes to prepare. The finished treats break up easily into training treats, and they’re very inexpensive to make. Right now, a pound of chicken liver is under $1 at our local grocery store; I used chicken breast because I had it on hand but you could substitute and chicken (or turkey) meat you might have in your refrigerator or freezer.

This recipe literally took minutes to prepare although you’ll bake it for almost two hours. I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets so cleanup was super simple. The recipe isn’t pretty in preparation…or as it cooks. Here’s a look at the treats about halfway through baking…

Halfway through baking, you’ll cut the treats into square so all sides will cook. It just doesn’t get much easier than this!

Recipe: Chicken Liver Dog Treat Squares

Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken livers
  • 1 pound chicken
  • 3 eggs

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees. Put parchment paper on two cookie sheets or, if you don't have parchment paper on hand, lightly grease cookie sheets.
  2. Add chicken and eggs to blender or food processor and chop then mix. Add chicken livers to mixture, pouring entire container of livers, juices and all, into mixture. Mix until you have a malt-like consistency.
  3. Pour the mixture in the center of the two cookie sheets then bake. After one hour, cut each mixture into one-inch squares and flip so that all sides of the treats will brown. Bake for one more hour.
  4. When treats are browned, turn off the oven but leave the cookie sheets in the heated oven to cool for several hours. Cool treats completely before serving or refrigerating. Refrigerate or freeze all treats; they'll last about two weeks in the refrigerator.
