00:00 Tennille: Welcome to Treat Your Dog, a baking podcast presented by Doggy Dessert Chef. Each week, you can bake along with us and make tasty homemade treats for your pups.
00:09 Tennille and Derk: Let’s treat your dog.
00:14 Tennille: Hello, all. It’s Tennille, and we’re gonna be baking pineapple bacon chicken treats today. This recipe requires a little prep work, to get some of your ingredients ready. You need a cooked and chopped chicken breast and two slices of crisply cooked bacon. I make both of these in my oven. It might not be the quickest way, but I can toss them in and let them bake without having to do anything. Once your chicken and bacon are cooked and chopped, you can get started. You’ll also need a cup of crushed pineapple in its own juice, you don’t want any sugars or sweeteners in your pineapple, half a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese and a cup of brown rice flour. Prepare your baking sheet, line it with parchment paper or foil, or a silicon baking mat and set it to the side, and then preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
00:56 Tennille: Now, you’re gonna mix your chicken, bacon, mozzarella cheese, pineapple and brown rice flour in a mixing bowl and stir it until it’s well combined. I don’t know about your pups, but mine are pretty big sticklers about quality control, so I always make sure to make just an extra little piece of bacon, so they can make sure it’s okay before I go on ahead with the whole recipe. Once everything’s mixed, roll your dough into half-inch balls and place them about an inch apart on your baking sheet. Press the tops with a fork to flatten and then bake them for about 10 to 15 minutes. I’ll let you get those in the oven. I will be back once our treats are coming out.
01:36 Tennille: Alright, let’s get these treats out of the oven. Since they are little thicker, you might have to sacrifice one to make sure they’re cooked completely through. Just split it in half and make sure the center isn’t still doughy. Once they’re cool, give them to your pups, as many as they’d like or not as many as they’d like. Make sure you treat sparingly. You don’t want them to get a little chunky. And save any leftovers in the refrigerator. There’ll be a link to the recipe in the comments. Come back next week for another delicious dog treat recipe. Happy baking.
02:06 Tennille: All these recipes have been carefully researched, but we cannot rule out the possibility of food intolerances, and it is essential that you speak with your veterinarian before feeding your dog any homemade treats.
