Here is a recipe for Chicken Jerky...
• 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders. Soft frozen makes them easier to slice
• 1/4 cup vegetable oil
Juice from one lemon
2 Tablespoons Honey
Your choice of dog-friendly seasonings: parsley, rosemary, sage (preferably fresh and chopped very fine)
• Rinse the chicken breasts and remove any fat, which slows down the dehydrating process and will shorten the jerky’s shelf life. Fat may also go rancid quickly in dehydrator.
• Slice the chicken into strips about 1/4- to 1/8-inch thick; slicing with the grain. This will make the treats chewier!
Coat the strips with oil, lemon juice, honey and seasonings. Put in Ziploc bag and let marinate overnight.
• Place the strips on the dehydrator tray, spacing them evenly; make sure they do not touch. The drying process depends on adequate airflow between the strips.
