Recipe: Chicken Liver Dog Treat Squares

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!


Your work will be well-appreciated, too…our dogs just LOVED these treats!
