There’s nothing that our cat likes more than to start her day with a handful of these crunchy biscuits. In fact, Jill likes them so much, she once managed to open the kitchen cupboard and get the lid off the plastic box I’d left them in. I found her sitting guiltily on the kitchen floor, surrounded by crumbs, in the morning!

Luckily, as these biscuits are really healthy, Jill was absolutely fine. You can feed these every day like I do, but make sure that your cat still gets plenty of her normal food as these biscuits aren’t a replacement for a complete diet.

Chewy Chicken Biscuits - for cats 

Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking time:        25 mins

 cat 304156 1280

You Will Need:

60g rice

60g wholemeal flour

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

½ chicken stock cube

225g chicken mince

½ teaspoon brewer’s yeast

½ teaspoon dried kelp

A little cooking oil


1.  Cook the rice, drain and allow to cool. Then mix it together with the flour, oil and crumbled stock cube. Brown the mince gently in a frying pan and then add into the mix, along with the brewer’s yeast and kelp.

Then add in hot water a little at a time, until the mixture is wet enough to form a thick and heavy dough.

2.  Wet your hands and then roll up the mixture into grape-sized balls which you drop onto a well-greased baking tray. Bake in a moderate oven (180 C, Gas mark 4) for about twenty-five minutes, until the biscuits, are firm and golden brown.

Allow to cool well before brushing with a little oil (to add a bit of extra palatability) and serving as a morning treat.

These biscuits keep well in an airtight container for at least a week.
