Hi, I am Melinda Cerritos with Four Paws Pantry. Today, I am showing you how to make Frozen Chicken Bites. Right now, I am going to show you how to freeze your Chicken Bites, and how to store them. You can start out, just a regular plate and some plastic wraps, any type of plastic wrap will do. You want to line your plate just so, that the Chicken Bites wont stick to the plate once they are frozen. We had our Chicken Bites from earlier; we had rolled them in the bread crumbs and the parmesan cheese. Now, we just need to take the bites, and place them on the plate. You can kind of, shape them once they have set in the bread crumbs. They are a little bit easier to handle. You can kind of, shape them in a bowl. They dont have to be perfectly round. Make sure you dont allow them to touch. That way they dont freeze and stick together. Then they will be kind of, hard to separate.
Depending on the size that you make, small for small dogs, larger ones for larger dogs, you can make up between 15 and 20 treats. Today, I've just made them a little larger. You may need a larger plate, you may need two plates. Once you are done with that, you dont have to cover it with anything. You just simply take it, put it in the freezer for about six hours, and theyll be perfectly frozen after that. Once they are frozen, then you can store them. I like to store mine in an air-tight container. This is what they look like, once they have been frozen, very hard and solid. They wont stick together once you put, once they have been frozen on the plate. Once you put them in a container, they wont stick together once they have been frozen. So, you just pull out one at a time for a dog, for your dogs treat.
Now, that I have shown you how to freeze your chicken bites and to store them, I would like to thank you and I hope that you have learned a lot today with this recipe, and I hope that you have a good time making them for your dog just as much as I enjoy them for making them for mine.
