Homemade chicken jerky is my go-to treat for my pups. Daisy was going nuts over this jerky as it was dehydrating in the Ninja Foodi. When I offered her a piece, she couldn’t wait to get it. Chicken jerky is irresistible to pups! Chicken jerky strips are made easy thanks to the dehydrating feature on your Ninja Foodi.

Natural Chicken Jerky Treats For Dogs

This is why I love the Ninja Foodi so much. You can go from making a whole chicken in the Ninja Foodi to desserts, and then move on to making chicken jerky. I mean it is outstanding to find all the incredible ways to use your Foodi in your home. 

We have had one snowy and cold winter, and I wanted to treat my pups to something tasty. Let me share how to make this jerky at home, so you can make some for your dogs as well. 

Is Chicken Jerky Good For Dogs

Chicken is an excellent source of protein and will help fuel their bodies. I find making homemade treats like this jerky is a safer way to know exactly what I am feeding my dogs. There are so many fillers in their food and treats these days; I just prefer taking some time to make their treats.

How to Cut Chicken Jerky

If you want a chewier jerky just cut with the grain in the chicken. This will help them to chew on the chicken jerky longer, rather than to devour it right away. 

If your dogs like a softer then cut against the grain of the chicken for a more tender jerky.

How to Tell If Chicken Jerky Is Done 

The one thing I always tell people is depending on where you live and altitude you will find that the cooking time will vary slightly. Plus the size you cut your meat plays a role as well. You want your jerky to be firm and pretty dry feeling. If you see your chicken jerky appears soft or somewhat spongy, that means it needs to cook a bit more. Firmness is key.

How Do I Dehydrate Chicken Without a Dehydrator

If you don’t have a dehydrator, reach for your Ninja Foodi. It offers a dehydrator feature, that will work down your dog jerky efficiently. You can also find instructions on how to make chicken jerky in the oven. 

Can You Freeze Chicken Jerky Treats

Ninja Foodi Chicken Jerky Treats for Dogs

You can freeze these homemade chicken jerky treats. What I do is leave some out that I will give to my dogs for the week, and then toss the rest in the freezer. I use my Food Saver that vacuum seals the treats, or you can even throw in a freezer bag. Try to remove all the air you can, and then freeze for three months. 

If you use the Food Saver you can freeze for up to a year or longer. You can find the guidelines in your pamphlet! 

Making your own homemade chicken jerky treats for your dogs is easy. Best of all affordable if you can find deals on chicken at your local store. Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

Oh .. I’m sorry I forgot to add.. it makes the meat much easier to slice you freeze it for an hour before you get started. 😁

Hi.. Thanks for the post! I’m trying this today in my IP Duo Crisp. I wanted to share a hack I’ve been using if you don’t have a food saver for your frozen treats etc. Take a zip lock freezer bag, after adding the cooked, cooled jerky, seal the top leaving enough space to fit a drinking straw near one end. Insert and use the straw suck all the air out with your mouth, once completed quickly remove the straw and seal the last part of the baggie fastening keeping air from entering. Works a treat!

I've been making these chicken jerky for my dog (and my daughters) since I saw this post. He's old and blind, and loves these treats! My daughter's dog perks up when she hears a zip lock bag opening hoping she is getting a piece of these. I now have to make 3lbs of chicken every 2 weeks, but well worth it. I know they are SAFE treats for the dogs. Thank you again for posting!

how long does this store for? I would LOVE to make these for the dogs that come in to my place of work, but I have no way to preserve them, so I would have to store them in a container... what would the 'shelf life' be? Thanks!
