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!
If you had told teenage me that I’d spend a lot of time making homemade dog treats 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 giant batch for 8 bucks. And that was using organic air chilled chicken because I was feeling fancy that day.
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.
