Chicken Pot Pie for Dogs

Another celebration calls for another yummy treat! I thought I spiced things up a bit for this year's Gotcha Day (December 21) with something other than a generic steak. As a human being, I love having a warm fresh chicken pot pie during the winter time. And with that thought, I wanted Cooper to have the same experience. Although he probably just saw it as any other food dish I give him, something to gobble up in a matter of seconds.

As always, our recipes are modified to be dog friendly.

  9. Line jars with cut-out dough, place in the diced chicken, potato, and carrot.

Notes & Tips: 

  • With leftover dough, use it for doggy cookies! Just simply roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and either use cookie cutters or a knife to cut out shapes. Place it in the oven at 350°F for 20 minutes. Voila! More treats for your four-legged friend.
  • Freeze the cookies and chicken pot pie to keep it lasting longer. It should last up to 1-2 months.
  • Use your dog's food/meal as the filling for the pot pie if you don't want to give them chicken, carrots, or potatoes.
