The Best Sunday Dinner Frozen Chicken Dog Treats
The Best Sunday Dinner Frozen Chicken Dog Treats are the perfect pup pops for a hot summer day. With these dog treats, you can keep your pet cool and refreshed while enjoying some of your favorite Sunday dinner flavors!
Sunday dinner was always a baked chicken, mixed veggies, and either potatoes or rice. Since potatoes aren’t the best thing for dogs, we use rice in this classic throwback treat that is too cool to pass up!
The Best Frozen Chicken Dinner Pup Pops
You want to make the perfect pup pops for your dog, but you are not sure what goes into them. Let us tell you about our secret recipe! We use all-natural ingredients and create a delicious treat that is just as good as Sunday dinner. These pup pops will have your dog begging for more.
Can dogs eat baby food?
Yes – but read the labels! Baby food can sometimes contain ingredients such as onion powder or garlic extract which could be dangerous when eaten by dogs. We only use natural flavors and low-glycemic carbs to create our sweet treats! Our baby food is purely pureed chicken – no seasonings – so we are worry-free!
Can dogs eat rice?
Yes – rice is a common ingredient in dog food. The problem with some types of rice, however, is they can cause intestinal blockage or other digestive problems if not cooked properly and processed well. We use the safest cooking process for our pup pops to ensure your pup’s safety!
Fido can eat plain white rice or pasta after it’s cooked. And, a serving of plain white rice with some boiled chicken can sometimes make your dog feel better when they are having stomach problems.
Your pup can eat cooked rice every day, but remember there has to be a balance of the nutrients your companion needs, which are protein, fat from meat or oil, calcium, essential fatty acids, and carbohydrates.
Can dogs eat carrots?
Dogs cannot digest raw vegetables as well as humans do so we cook them! Frozen veggies are ALL lightly cooked when they are cleaned, cut, and blanched for freezing.
We keep the carrot count low for this recipe also as with all the sugar that is naturally in them? That could be too much for your pup’s weight management.
Can dogs eat peas?
Yes, they can eat peas. Green peas, snow peas, sugar snap peas, and garden or English peas are all OK for dogs to find in their bowl on occasion. Peas have several vitamins, minerals, and are rich in protein and high in fiber. You can feed your dog fresh or frozen peas, but avoid canned peas with added sodium.

How Treats Affect Your Dog’s Diet
You know the importance of choosing a healthy diet for your pet. You have taken the time and effort to consult with the veterinarian about healthy and nutritious dog food. Whether you choose dried food, canned dog food, or make it from scratch, you may be overlooking something extremely important in your dog’s diet.
Do you occasionally give your best friend a treat from the table or rawhide to chew? These treats may seem like a simple snack or tidbit, but they really can add up. You may not have considered it before, but any and all treats that you give your pet are a part of your dog’s diet. The question now becomes, how significant are treats in your dog’s diet? Do you give your dog a treat once a day in the evening while watching television, or do you scatter Milk Bones throughout the day for each cute look or adorable pet trick?
Keep it healthy
The type of treats you give your dog also makes a difference in your dog’s diet. Do you pass out cookies and scraps from dinner, or maybe a piece of popcorn or two? Junk food for you becomes junk food for your pet. In fact, some healthy foods for you are not good for your dog. Raisins are a healthy snack for humans to munch on between meals, but they can be detrimental to the health of your dog. Keep your dog’s diet healthy even during snack time with treats.
Your pup views a treat as just that, a special treat between meals. For the most part, dogs don’t care if you give them a baby carrot, rawhide chew, or Milk-Bone. They are happy to get the snack. If you find you provide numerous treats during the course of the day, you may need to modify your dog’s diet to avoid maintaining a healthy weight. Giving your pet a whole bunch of treats sure is fun for both you and your dog but can lead to serious health troubles.
Consider altering your pooch’s diet by giving him or her less “processed” treats. Instead of a large Milk-Bone, for example, break the treat into several smaller pieces and distribute them one at a time or use one of our homemade treats that use all healthy ingredients. This will have your dog eating less between meals.
This way, you can focus solely on the food consumed during mealtime. A dog’s diet needs to be healthy to ensure a long and happy life for your pet.
How to Make Frozen Chicken Dog Treats
This very easy-to-make recipe will yield about 35 treats – it really depends on the size of the mold you use. We used this cute mold we found on Amazon: 2 Pack Combo Silicone Molds Trays with Puppy Mini Dog Paw and Mini Bone Shape. I just love the whimsical dog paw and bone shapes for the treats – honestly you could use an ice cube tray, but these just make me happy.
From start to finish, these will take just a touch over 2 hours to make and freeze enough for your pup to enjoy.
If you do not have rice flour – you can MAKE it yourself – just grind cheap white rice in a grinder until it is a flour-like texture. That can actually be less expensive than buying a bag of rice flour from the gluten-free section of your grocery store.
Frozen Chicken Dog Treats Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup Rice Flour
- 1 jar Chicken Baby Food (2.5 oz jar)
- 1/2 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Diced Carrots
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Peas
Step 1: Add ingredients to the blender but save about 1/4 each of the peas and carrots. I do this to give the pops a little texture however, if you are not worried about texture then you can add them all in.
Step 2: Run the blender until fully blended.
Step 3: Place molds on a cookie sheet and add some peas and carrots to each of the spaces.
Step 4: Fill each space with the blended mixture pouring it over the peas and carrots.
Step 5: Place the molds in the freezer for a minimum of two hours until fully frozen.
It actually made a bit more than the 2 fun molds, so I grabbed another mold from my stash quickly to fill in. As I said, you could use an ice cube tray.
