Your dog will love this delicious chicken pot pie!
We’ve all been in the kitchen preparing a meal for ourselves while our furry companions look at us with a bit of drool coming off their lips. Dry dog food is just compacted food with supplements added, why not make them a more filling meal that is natural and healthy for them? Could you imagine eating the same dry kibble day in and day out while smelling so many other delicious foods being made? That is where this recipe fits in. You can actually make chicken pot pie that is healthy for your dog! Preferably made as a treat for your dog or a once in awhile meal replacement, your dog will thank you for the different taste of food.
Since homemade meals don’t have all of the nutrients necessary for dogs, we also add in our favorite dog supplement to the recipe. You can order it online and try it out for yourself. This way they get all the nutrients they need for their fur, teeth, skin, nails, and more.

Your dog won’t be finding chicken pot pie out in the wild, so it’s not a natural meal for them to eat. However, it does provide protein, carbs, oils and other nutrients to help support their bodies. It’s also a nice treat and a way to show you love them!
Below are the cooking materials and ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe as well as the directions for cooking. They are simple and can be picked up for cheap at the grocery store.
*NOTE* If your pet is allergic to any of the ingredients listed below, please substitute or don’t feed them this recipe. *
Cooking Utensils Needed
Coconut Oil Spray (You can always use coconut oil in room temperature)
Muffin Pan or 4 oz mason jars
8 inch round cake pan
2 Cut Strips of Chicken Breast
1 Bag of peas
Recommended dosage of your favorite dog supplement, we like to use Wholistic canine organic supplement powder
1 1/2 Cup of Rolled Oats
2 Cups Cassava root flour
1/2 Cup of Water
1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the water, coconut oil, cracked egg, dog supplement, then mix in the flour and add the oats. It’s best to add each ingredient one at a time while mixing the previous ingredients first.
- You’ll keep stirring the mixture until you get a sticky and doughy concoction. You don’t want to over mix it so when you notice it become slightly sticky, then it’s just right.
- Throw some cassava root flour on your cutting board and knead the dough with it until it’s no longer sticky and form a ball.
- Wrap the dough mixture and let it chill for 30 minutes.
- Pull the dough out and throw some more cassava root flour on your board. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it’s about 1/8 inch thick flat.
- You can use your muffin pan as a press or use your eye to cut our large enough dough circles. If you are using a mason jar, use the lid as a reference. The goal is to have enough dough to cover the ingredients and fit in the muffin pan or 4 oz mason jar.
- Spray your jar or muffin pan with coconut oil. Cover each muffin pan or mason jar with one circular dough cut out.
- Dice up the carrot, chicken strips, and potato and add them to each mason jar or muffin pan.
- You will have excess dough so line the edges of each jar or muffin pan with any excess to form a top or mini dome.
- Repeat this until you have all your mason jars or the muffin pan is full.
- Pre-heat your oven to 425° F.
- If cooking with jars, put them in the cake pan and place in the oven. If using the muffin pan, cover and place in the oven.
- Cook in the oven for roughly 40 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the top is a golden crusty brown.
- Let cool and serve to your dog warm.
