Tasty Tuesday

I give the girlz these chicken jerky treats!!

The jerky is tough and chewy, so it keeps them out of trouble for a little while!

2 to 4 chicken breasts

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove any excess fat from the chicken. Turn the chicken breast on its side and use a paring knife to slice the chicken breast into 1/8 inch thick strips.

Set the strips on a baking sheet. Bake for 2 hours.

Check the chicken before removing from the oven. It should be dry and hard, not soft or chewy. Allow the chicken to cool completely before serving.

Store the jerky in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

You can substitute sweet potatoes for the chicken in this recipe.

I luv chicken jerky! Mama makes it most every month. Not sweet potatos though cos she say they just too dang hard to cut!

Amy said...

Great idea! By the way - If you freeze the chicken you can slice it super thin in the food processor. Recently there has been buzz about the even nastier chemicals the poultry industry are using in response to new salmonella regs, so make sure to rinse the chicken well first, and then sterilize the sink.

You need patience to make jerky in the oven. It takes a long time but its worth it. Happy Tasty Tuesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Sending big hugs to you today.

Easy peasy AND the best part is that you know they are safe for the pups. Maybe Mom can make us some of these too.
