so after orderin Kona's Value Pack 12 Oz Chicken Jerky, Turkey Jerky 6 Oz, Pig Ears Slivers 1 lb, Mega C 2000, Krazy Healthy vitamin supplements from konaschips.com

i decided to make my own chicken jerky! :) i'll be purchasin a dehydrator and savin $ as the jerkies i bought added up to be almost $50 for everythin. i rather buy $5 worth of chicken and get my own fun slices and add in some helathy salmon oil or coconut oil as well! :) this will be a fun project. i'll let u guys know how it turns out~ the one from the store is cheap so im hopin it doesnt break, if so i'll just get one from amazon after :lol:

not only can i make jerky, i can also dry some nummy fruit! LOL :daisy:

oh and i can get all the vits i need from the crazy healthy and the mega c from that site! :coolwink:

Awesome! Can't wait to hear all about your new creations with the dehydrator! Just remember, a treat is a treat. Not a meal. LOL. So when you give him some of that delicious dried jerky, just give him a fingernail sized piece. Not a whole huge chunk. :)

hehehe! ull save tons of money :) just need enuff for the ingredients if u want to add any flavor on it/ the chicken breasts/ and the dehydrator itself if u dont wanna use an oven

Think you need a webcam like Jan,so we can all watch you at work and it would be like a cookery class
hahahaha!!! i actually do have a webcam but the only thing ull be seein is my dad makin stuff in the kitchen....the dehydrator just stays there and does all the work :)

what a great idea !!! cant wait to see how they come out :)
me too!!!!! :D

jan we do have some great minds huh :lol: ah i heard the nesco was good. i was actually thinkin of puttin fruit on there too hahahaha!!! let me know how urs turns out too ;)

Or you can do the chicken jerky in the oven if you prefer! Here's a couple recipes, one is the regular chicken strips and the other one is making a puree and then drying it out.

A friend of mine does chicken, lamb,duck, beef, bananas,apple slices, sweet potatoe slices, and some veggies in it for her dogs. Ralph wants to start doing the same thing since we already do a combination of homecooking & raw. Good Luck Sugar...let me know how it turns out.

Ha Ha well the lady owns a chihuahua and due to all the recalls and warnings she is much like us about healthy feeding of her pup. She shared with me an extensive list of items you can do in the dehydrator that are good for pups as well as people. ;) Everything is all natural, fresh, worry free and less expensive in the long run. :p
