Homemade Chicken Jerky for Dogs – the easiest dog treat recipe! Thinly sliced chicken baked at a really low temperature until dehydrated. My dogs love this!
I also have a Homemade Beef Jerky for Dogs recipe if your dog is more of a beef fan!
If you had told teenage me that I’d spend a lot of time making homemade dog treats as part of my job as an adult, I would’ve said, “Yep, sounds right.”
I would’ve also said, “I’ll drive a Jeep, have a really cute boyfriend, and live at the beach.”
And, well, pretty close.
Anyway, the other day I was at Petco looking at all the rodents and cats up for adoption and wandered over to the dog treats where they want 20 DOLLARS FOR A TINY BAG OF JERKY.
We’re making our own jerky,
I made a giant batch for 8 bucks. And that was using organic air chilled chicken because I was feeling fancy that day.
How To Make Homemade Chicken Jerky for Dogs
This is seriously the easiest homemade dog treat you will ever make.
It’s one ingredient.
You just slice is really thin (pop it in the freezer for an hour or 2 beforehand to make slicing it easier) and bake it at a really low temperature for 2 hours.
The chicken dehydrates and gets crispy and my dogs are obsessed with it.
My 9 year old keeps asking to try them, too. I don’t know.
Tools You May Need
I recommend using a rimmed baking sheet and a wire cooling rack for these. Put the wire rack on top of the baking sheet that way the air can circulate all around the chicken. And then the baking sheet is there to catch any drippings.
The wire cooling rack will be almost impossible to get completely clean (even if you spray it well with oil) so I recommend using one you don’t love or buying a cheap one just for making jerky.
How Long Is Homemade Chicken Jerky Good For?
This jerky will be good in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Stored in the fridge, it will be good for up to 2 weeks!
