Chef Charlie's Easy Turkey Jerky!


1-2 pounds raw turkey breast, thinly and evenly sliced


Foods rich in tryptophan, like turkey, can make pets feel content and even a little sleepy due to the calming chemicals it contains. Homemade jerky is an easy way to offer turkey as a treat to stressed pets.

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Sprinkle the turkey slices lightly with salt. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay the turkey strips side by side as the turkey dehydrates. Cooking time can range from 2 to 5 hours depending on the thickness of the slices. The jerky is ready when it's dry and breaks when gently bent. Freeze unused portions that won't be eaten within a week.
