One pkg of boneless skinless chicken breasts.
1 pkg of plain rawhide twists 4" in length (50 sticks per bag)
One programmable dehydrator
Split chicken breast into two slices (top and bottom), then cut these slices into strips usually 1/4 inch wide. Complete the process till all meat is cut.
You use 1 stick per treat, wrap a strip around the rawhide chew, place the finished treat on the dehydrator tray.
Repeat until all the the sticks have been wrapped. If you have chicken strip left over I suggest you form them into a circle and place in the dehydrator as well.
Your drying time will vary according to the brand. I found through trial and error that the temp at 130° was good over night. I have used 160° overnight when I cut them a little wider. The longer they dry means you don't have to refrigerate when you are finished. If you leave them soft at any point you could be asking for problems.
I started these for my 3 when all the huff started again over imported treats, I also make them flat pupperonis using ground beef and a jerky extruder I purchased at the same time. Trust me when I tell you my 2 doxies and my ageing basset mix love these treats!
