Chicken Liver Dog Biscuits
You would think dogs eat everything. I thought so until my dog came along. She is rather picky when it comes to food. She loves the beef liver treats I make for her so when I came across this recipe, I thought chicken liver might be safe too.
The difference is that with this recipe, the main ingredient is flour with a smattering of liver. My dog would pick out the liver and more often that not, leave the rest of the biscuit. Luckily I have another dog who typically eats everything. So she cleans up after the first dog!
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rice flour ; or oat flour
1/4 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 cup Chicken broth
1 cup Liver ; cooked and chopped
Mix the flours and parsley together in a bowl then blend all the wet ingredients in a separate mixing bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet while mixing. After it is well blended, fold in the liver.
Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead a few times. Roll out about 1/4 inch to 3/4 inch depending on the size of your dog’s mouth and cut into shapes or just plain cut into rectangles.
Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or till firm.
Store in the fridge or freezer.
Makes about 40 of the star shape.
