Today’s Dog Treat Recipe

NATURAL CHICKEN JERKY STRIPS

These treats are made from thin strips of chicken, slow baked to almost the point of crispness.
All NATURAL, they are A HEALTHY TREAT for your loved pet.

2 – 3 chicken breast fillets and 2 – 3 tenderloins (I use free range antibiotic free, organic).
Rinse the breast fillets and tenderloins under cold water; pat dry and clean by removing any excess fat and sinew.
To make cutting easier, I place the chicken breasts and tenderloins in the freezer for around 30 minutes … it’s so much easier to slice.
I slice mine thinly and as even as possible, but you can decide how thick you want yours to be. Keep in mind, the thicker the slices, the longer they are going to need to dry in your oven.
Preheat your oven to 120° C (250° F.) Line two shallow baking trays with parchment paper (good for catching any drips) and place a wire rack over, on, or in, each baking tray.
Place the sliced chicken strips in an even layer across the wire racks, making sure they don’t touch each other. There needs to be a little space between each piece of chicken, so air can flow between them and around them while they are drying out, this helps the dehydrating process.
Place the trays on the lowest rack in your oven.
Thin, even sliced chicken strips should take about 2½ – 3 hours in your oven, but as ovens differ, check the strips after about 2 hours.
To check: Using kitchen tongs, take one strip out and check to see if there are any light patches. If there are light patches, it means the chicken is still moist, so you will need to put the strip back in the oven for another 30 minutes. You may need to repeat this process one more time, you want NO light patches, NO moisture at all.
When properly dried, the chicken will be the same color all over.
Once done, remove the trays from the oven, and leave them to cool.
When cool, you can store them in sealed containers or zip-locking bags.
If the treats aren’t going to be eaten within 7 days, store them in your refrigerator, for a longer shelf life.
Note: You probably won’t need to write the date on the containers or bags, as once your pampered pet tastes them, they won’t last that long……

Feed these Chicken Jerky Strips as a treat.
Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pets diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.
