Maggie’s Chicken Burgers

chicken burgers for dogs

Who doesn’t like burgers? This is a great burger for dogs due to it’s a healthy makeover by adding the veggies right in the mix. Dogs don’t know that their burger is loaded with healthy veggies.


4 cups of minced chicken (about a pound, 500 g)

1 cup of veggie and fruit melee (on this recipe I used apple, carrot, courget, lettuce)

1 cup of brown rice.


  1. Cook rice according to package
  2. Pre-heat oven to 180 C (350 F)
  3. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine Veggie & fruit melee, rice and minced chicken
  4.  Roll into small ball, make patty size about 1/2 cup size. (for a dog around 11 kg, 22 lb.)
  5. place on cookie sheet and press into patties.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm


  • Patties will keep for 2 weeks in the refrigerator, 3 months in a freezer
  • You can make this as a chicken loaf that you can slice a piece for your dog.
  • In summer, they are fantastic on the BBQ (cook each side for about 5 minutes or until firm.)
