Make your own chicken jerky for dogs using your own oven if you do not have a dehydrator. Takes little preparation and even less effort!
|Chicken jerky dog treats|
- Frozen baked chicken cut into 1/4 inch strips. Some bakers recommend baking it first to make sure that the meat is not raw prior to drying, which could be a source for bacterial contamination. Sometimes frozen meat is easier to cut. Make sure to remove all the fat (which will keep it moist and prevent drying.)
- Place chicken strips on a baking sheet.
- Leave strips in the oven. (Some bakers recommend leaving the door slightly ajar for ventilation.) Set your timer for at least 4 hours. Depending how dry you want the jerky, you may need to leave it in longer.
