Today’s Dog Treat Recipe


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.


The chicken strips should look similar to this before baking

Today’s Dog Treat Recipe


You’ll love making this sweet potato dog chew recipe for your dog because sweet potatoes are loaded with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients. They are rich in Vitamin A, C and E, Vitamin B1, B2, B3 and B6, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium. They also contain valuable anti-inflammatory nutrients, and are classified as an anti-diabetic food.  They received this title because animal studies have found that sweet potatoes help stabilize blood sugar levels and lower insulin resistance.

2-3 Large Sweet Potatoes, washed thoroughly and dried
Preheat oven to 110° C (250° F)
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cut off one side of the sweet potato lengthwise, as close to the edge as possible. Cutting the side of the potato first allows you to then turn the potato onto this flat surface that you have just created. Having a stable area to rest the potato will make it easier to cut the potato into slices. Don’t discard that first piece, it comes out just as yummy as the rest!
Cut the rest of the potato into slices, no smaller than 1/4″.
Place them on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 3 hours, turning over after 90 minutes.
(Baking for 3 hours results in a soft, but chewy dog treat. If your dog prefers more of a crunch, then bake for an additional 20-30 minutes).
When you take the sweet potatoes out of the oven, they may at first appear to be too soft. Let them cool completely on a wire rack before you decide whether or not to bake them longer. This is because they will continue to dry or harden while cooling.
Storing – Although these treats are dried, you will want to keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. You can freeze them for up to 4 months.

Feed these chews as a treat. Feed a 1 to 2 inch portion per 4.5 kg (10 lbs) of body weight. Treats should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s diet.
As with any treat, always provide fresh water after feeding.
