Turkey Jerky (travel dog treats)

Makes 3 cups of treats


2 pounds turkey breast, sliced thin
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped fine


Pound the sliced turkey breasts with a meat pounder until thin. Set aside. In a small mixing bowl whisk together, garlic, honey, soy sauce and water, add the herbs and stir. Add the turkey slices and mix together. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 175°F.

Drain the sliced dry from the turkey and pat turkey slices dry. Lie flat on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and place in the oven for 3 hours. After 3 hours flip over turkey slices and cook another 3-4 hours or until completely dry and leathery. Let stand for a few hours and then cut into bite or treat size pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to one month.
