It’s officially cookie season! When the weather first cools down, it’s the perfect time to heat up your house and heart with a little lovin’ from the oven for your whole family. That includes our dogs! These chicken pot pie dog treats are crafted just for your best friend.
Chicken Pot Pie Dog Treats
This homemade dog treat recipe combines all the chicken pot pie flavor of the tummy-warming classic into a savory (and quite lovely) cookie. These treats are made with real chicken, other natural ingredients, and are free of artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, and processed junk your dog doesn’t need. It’s also completely safe for your pet and can be made grain-free depending on your flour of choice.
We stir in frozen peas and carrots right before the rolling out the dough. That’s how these natural dog treats get those beautiful pops of color! If you use a flower cookie cutter as we did, you can mimic the look of a crimped edge biscuit or fluted pie crust.Print

This recipe is perfect to use up a little leftover dry turkey or chicken meat from a holiday roast, or you can use ground meat if you find a good sale.
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: variable
- Category: Holiday treats
- 1 cup cooked and finely diced turkey or chicken
- 2 ½ cups flour (AP flour, Wheat, or Oat flour will all work well)
- ½ low or no-sodium chicken broth
- 2 eggs
- optional: turmeric, sage, and parsley to taste
- ½ cup frozen mixed peas and carrots or leftover plain veggies diced
You will need a cookie cutter (or a glass will do in a pinch!) we used a small biscuit cutter because the fluted edges remind us of pie crust.
- Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (175 ºC).
- Place the flour, meat, and spices (if using) in a bowl and mix to combine
- Add the broth in, mixing thoroughly
- Add eggs and mix just until the dough holds together nicely
- Now fold in the veggies, being careful not to mash them up too much
- Divide dough in half and roll out to about a 1/4″ thickness and cut out, placing on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
- Bake the cookies until just golden around the edges, about 20 minutes

Storing, Serving, and Safety
Safety note: these chicken pot pie dog treats don’t contain onion or garlic, which are unsafe for dogs. When baking for your dog, be sure to read up on dog-safe ingredients (or just follow our recipes, which are designed just for doggies).
Because these tasty treats contain meat (which can go bad) and veggies (which hold moisture and cause mold), this is a treat you will want to store in the fridge. Your chicken pot pie dog treats should be fine on the counter for a day, in the fridge for a week, and in the freezer for up to three months.
As for serving, you know your dog best. Dog treats shouldn’t make up more than 10% of your dog’s diet, though if you’re training or indulging, you can always adjust the amount of dog food in the daily feeding regimen.
