These soft treats are easily broken into smaller pieces and could appeal to ‘Chicken Kittens’ that act like they are intimidated by crunchy snacks.  Dogs love them too.Chicken Kitten Cat Treats   (prep. time about a half hour. Makes 50, dime-size treats)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Stir all ingredients together until well blended. Pinch off small pieces of dough and place on a parchment lined cookie tray (or spray the cookie sheet with baking spray).  Flatten each ball into a disk and bake for about 15 minutes, then turn the oven off and leave the treats in until the oven is cool.
