Rosemary Lemon Chicken Jerky [Recipe]

Your dogs will have to be patient while waiting for this chicken jerky, but it’ll be worth it when they have something tasty to chew on.

You’ll need
Blender or food processer
Baking sheet or dehydrator

2 to 3 Chicken Breasts
2 cups warm Water
1 Orange
1 Lemon
2 teaspoons fresh Rosemary, finely chopped

1. Add orange, lemon and water to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
2. Combine puree and rosemary in a bowl.
3. Clean the chicken breasts and cut into strips, removing all the fat you can from the meat. It is easier to cut if you freeze the chicken slightly.
4. Place the chicken strips into the marinade and allow to marinate for at least an hour in the refrigerator, if needed add more water so that the meat is completely covered.
5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees fahrenheit.
6. Place on baking sheet 1/2 inches apart, brush with marinade for additional flavor.
7. Dry in an oven, with the door slightly open to let out moisture, for about 3 to 4 hours, until meat is dry appearance and texture.
Cool and store in an air tight container.

If you have a food dehydrator that can be used to dry the meat too, just follow the manufactures instructions.
