Karen’s K-9 Kitchen
Preheat oven to350*
In blender combined the following:
¼ Cup Chicken Broth (or water) NOTE: You may need to add a little more liquid to make the dough more workable. Add 1 Tablespoon at a time (after letting the dough rest) until the consistency is a little thicker than cookie dough. Different flours used may require a little more or a little less liquid.
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1-12 .5 Ounce Can Chicken Breast
½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
¼ Cup Parmesan Cheese OPTIONAL if you don’t like the smell while they are cooking
Mix until pureed.
Pour into a large bowl.
Mix in 3 ½ Cups Rye Flour, a little at a time, with a wooden spoon.
NOTE ABOUT DIFFERENT FLOURS: You can use ANY type of flour that you choose. When using the “non-gluten” flours such as Millet, Amaranth, Quinoa, etc., the cookies will be a little bit more “crumbly”. You can add 1 to 2 extra Tablespoons of Olive Oil to help correct this. Also, with different flours you may need to adjust the liquid……a little more…..a little less.
Let set for about 5 minutes for the moisture to soak into the flour. (After the 5 minutes, is the point where you would add a little more liquid if the dough was too crumbly and not sticking together well)
Spread extra Rye flour around on the counter top. Also flour your hands.
Pour mixture on top of floured counter top.
Knead the mixture a few times to bind it together then flatten out with hand. Dough will be a little sticky. Just sprinkle a little more Rye Flour on it as you go.
Flour your rolling pin, and roll out to about ¼” thick. Make sure you lift up the dough, before it gets too big, and sprinkle more flour under the dough to keep from sticking to the counter.
Don’t worry about the broken or cracked edges. Dog’s don’t care what shape they are! Just throw these pieces on the baking pan too!
Cut strips about ½” wide with butter knife or pizza cutter.
Then cut across to make about the size of a dime.
Lift on to cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes for softer cookies or 25 minutes for crunchy cookies.
You will get about 380 cookies or about 1 pound.
