  • Chicken Jerky

    1/2 lb. skinless, boneless chicken

    1/4 cup vegetable oil

    Dried seasonings such as parsley, rosemary, or sage, crushed

    Rinse chicken breast and remove any fat. Slice chicken into strips 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick (slicing with the grain will make the jerky even chewier). Coat strips with oil and seasonings. Place strips on a dehydrator tray, spacing them evenly and making sure they do not touch. Dehydrate the strips at 160°F until fully dry* (3-12 hours depending on thickness). Makes about 16 treats.

    *Note: After the first hour, check the chicken strips occasionally. The meat is fully dry when it is moisture-free and the same color throughout.
