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
Chicken Pot Pie Treats for Dogs
This is a great recipe to use up some leftover roast chicken or turkey. If you’re like me, sometimes you get to a point where you never want to see another slice of turkey in your life! Until next holiday season, that is.
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: varies
- Category: Anytime treats
- Method: baking
- 1 cup cooked turkey or chicken (hot tip: let the food processor shred it for you!)
- ½ low or no-sodium broth (This can be chicken, veggie, bone broth, or just whatever is on hand)
- 2 ½ cups flour (we use rolled oats ground to flour in the food processor; you can use whatever your dog likes best)
- pinch of turmeric
- optional: sage and/or parsley
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup frozen mixed peas and carrots
We’re going to whip this together in the food processor, but of course, you can stir by hand if that’s your preference.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Place half the flour, the cooked meat, turmeric, and herbs into the bowl and pulse to combine
- Add the broth and pulse lightly
- Add the rest of the flour and pulse to combine
- Add the eggs and pulse just enough to distribute
- Dump your dough into a large bowl and knead in the frozen veggies by hand
- Divide dough in half and roll out, adding more flour as necessary to avoid sticking
Cut out dog biscuits with cookie cutter and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until just starting to brown on bottom and edges.

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.
