When I saw a bag of chicken jerky for dogs priced at $20 on the dog snack shelf, I decided that I wanted to make it myself.

Homemade chicken jerky is not only more cost-effective but also allows me to have full control over the ingredients, ensuring that my furry friends get a taste of pure, all-natural goodness without any additives.

How to Make Chicken Jerky for Dogs

This recipe is incredibly simple, requiring just one ingredient: chicken breast. Next, I’ll share with you how to make this delicious and healthy dog treat that will have your pets begging for more.

How to Make Chicken Jerky for Dogs

One single ingredient.

That’s all you need: chicken breast.

Now, here’s the secret: you’re going to slice it ultra-thin. To achieve this, pop that chicken breast in the freezer for an hour or two beforehand. It’ll make slicing a breeze. And bake it at a really low temperature until it dehydrates. It loses moisture and becomes tantalizingly crispy.

And guess what? Your canine companions won’t be able to resist.

Tools You May Need to Make Chicken Jerky for Dogs

I highly recommend using a large air fryer with a dehydration feature for this task. It provides even airflow and temperature control, which is essential for dehydrating the chicken properly.

I used the Typhur Dome air fryer to help me complete this fantastic recipe. With its expansive cooking space, I could prepare a sizable batch of chicken jerky all in one go. But what truly made it a breeze was its pre-set dehydration mode.

No fuss, no hassle—just pop the chicken in and let the Typhur Dome work its magic. It’s the kind of kitchen gadget that turns a homemade treat into a stress-free culinary adventure.
