For a snack that’s paw-lickin’ good, you’ve got to try this Crispy Chicken Dog Treat. No dog can resist the temptation of chicken… and why would he? Chicken is a wonderful source of protein for your dog’s diet. And this recipe adds in a few more things your dog will love, such as sweet potato and egg. And there’s even a hint of garlic (in case you’re worried about feeding your dog garlic, please read The Shocking Truth About Dogs and Garlic article).

Makes about 20 servings

1 lb ground chicken
1 large sweet potato (cooked and mashed)
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or one large clove pressed
5 tablespoons large flake rolled oats
Olive oil


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine and mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil. Transfer all of the ingredients in the bowl onto a cookie sheet and spread evenly so that the mixture lays flat to the sides of pan (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick). Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.
  4. After an hour, remove sheet from oven and score the baked mixture with a knife or pizza cutter into squares.
  5. Put squares into the oven and bake for about hour at 250 degrees. Keep an eye on the treats, making sure they don’t burn. The dog treats should be fairly dry and a little crispy, but not burned.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for about an hour.
