Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day and since I’ve never experimented with making my own dog biscuits before, today seemed like as good a day as any to try my hand at these Chicken & Wild Rice Biscuits; especially since my two dogs come to work with me every day.

We have two Shih Tzu’s, Tebow (age 3 1/2) and Koda (8 months). Tebow loves when I experiment with new recipes during the week and follows me everywhere. The kitchen; where all of the cooking takes place, the living room; where I photograph my food in the large bay window as it has the best natural light in the house and he likes to just sit and watch and then into the dining room; where I have my sudo-office. He likes to hop up on the chair next to me to keep me company while I’m editing photos and writing posts like these.

Tebow

Koda is still too little yet, so he just follows Tebow around everywhere he goes and is still trying to learn the ropes. I almost trip over him 10 times a day as he likes to be in the middle of all of the action. Growing up I only had one dog when I was about 4 or 5 years old; then my next dog wasn’t until we had Casey; a Llaso Apso who passed away last Fall at the age of 12.

One thing I’ve learned since then is that dogs are truly part of your family and since I like to create family friendly meals, I thought it was about time I made something special for our four legged “children”.  I decided to go with these Chicken & Wild Rice Biscuits since the food they eat is also chicken and wild rice. I didn’t want to give them ingredients they were unfamiliar with; especially the puppy.

Chicken.& Wild Rice Dog Biscuits

These Chicken & Wild Rice Dog Biscuits were so easy to make and are prepared with natural ingredients like chicken, wild rice, flour, salt, chicken broth and eggs.

Here is what you have to do:

  • Start off by boiling a piece of boneless chicken breast and making wild rice; then allowed them to cool. You can do this a day ahead and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
  • Puree the chicken and rice with some chicken stock in a mini food processor or blender
  • Add flour, salt, egg and pureed chicken and rice to a bowl and mix well; then roll out the dough on a lightly floured board until 1/2-inch thick.
  • I purchased these dog bone cookie cutters from Amazon for about $5 (set of 3), but you can use any cookie cutter or glass to cut out the biscuits.
  • Once you cut out the shapes, bake for about 30 minutes; then allow to harden. You can store these in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months (allow 10-20 minutes for them to defrost before serving).

My dogs L.O.V.E.D. these dog biscuits and I like how easy they were to make at home; not to mention they contain ingredients that you can pronounce. This batch made 32 bones and I usedthe 3.5″ bone cutter, but will probably use a smaller size next time as they were a little big for my two little “boys”. I hope your furry friends like these Chicken & Wild Rice Dog Biscuits as much as ours did. ~Enjoy!

  • Popcorn (Hold the butter and salt!)
  • Carrots
  • Sweet potatoes

    Hi,
    I wandered if you can clarify please, is it 1/2 cup of rice then cook it or cook rice then use 1/2 cup? The 2 would be very different because of the absorption rate of rice. Looking forward to making these for my spaniel! Thanks

      Hi Laura, it is 1/2 cup of COOKED rice. When I made this I had just made about 2 cups of cooked rice for my family and used that. If you’re just making the rice for this rice, I’d use 1/4 cup of UNCOOKED rice; which should give you about 1/2-3/4 cup of cooked rice. I hope your spaniel loves these as much as my shih tzu’s! 🙂

    These sound great but after they are baked do they need to be refrigerated?

      They don’t have to be refrigerated, but keep them in an airtight container for up to one week. You can also freeze what you don’t think your pups will eat within that time. Enjoy! 🙂

    I used coconut flour and added peanut butter (since the coconut flour made it a bit too dry) and they’re cooking now! I let my pups have some of the dough and they went CRAZY. Thanks for the great recipe!
