Chicken Wild Rice Dog Treat Recipe
A couple months ago, I asked our friends on Facebook what type of dog treats they’d love to see and we received a ton of requests. Carob cupcakes, carrot treats, chicken wild rice, and so many other great ideas.
And then…life happened.
We had a few eventful weeks presented to us and before I knew it, I never shared this recipe with you. But I feel like I’m finally able to breath, regain focus and get back into a normal routine with life and this blog.
Lola and Rio literally sat in front of the oven the entire time these were baking. When I had to photograph them they were both on pins and needles waiting for me to give them one (I might have snuck them a little taste). If they could talk, I’d be willing to bet they’d tell you this is their favorite dog treat recipe yet.

I loved making them, too. As you know if you’ve read my previous DIY dog treat recipes – I love simple. And healthy. You will not see me feeding Lola and Rio a cheeseburger, ice cream cone, or french fries (I save that for myself). I’m not judging you if you do, but I just don’t think they need it and I want my babies to live a long, healthy life.
This recipe was inspired and adapted from Kol’s Notes.
- 1 cup wild rice, mashed (may sub with another rice)
- 1 cup chicken, diced fine or shredded
- 3 Tablespoons rice flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, diced
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
- Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir until well incorporated.
- Using a spoon, press mixture into each cavity, packing tight and filling nearly to the top.
- Bake for 25 minutes or until top begins to turn golden brown.
- Let cool completely before serving.

The rice flour was just brown rice flour from Bob’s Red Mill (if there’s ever a specialty flour you need, I guarantee they make it and it’s at most grocery stores).
To save time, I actually used canned chicken in this recipe. I was able to find an organic, canned chicken without any preservatives so I gave it a go.
And if you’re like me ten years ago (prior to living in Minnesota) and are going, “Huh? Where the heck can I find wild rice…wait, what is wild rice?!” just substitute with brown rice or whatever rice you’d like.
