|Parmesan Bacon Chicken Strips - Pet Treat Maker
|Makes about 2 dozen strip sized treats, depending on the size of the chicken breast & how thinly you slice them.
2 large chicken breasts, deboned
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds, hulled, roasted
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, dry, grated
2 tablespoons flour (can be wheat, rice, oat or barley)
2 tablespoons bacon, cooked, crumbled
Cook chicken thoroughly. Set aside to cool slightly, then slice into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices
Put remaining ingredients (except chicken) in food processor or blender & grate until a fine powder. Put powder in a pie pan or shallow bowl
Take one slice of chicken & dampen under running water, shaking off excess water, & then place in dry mixture. Using tines of fork, press chicken into mixture, flattening chicken slightly but also pressing mixture into the meat. Turn chicken slice over & press again. Then place on dehydrator tray.
Repeat process for all of the chicken slice
Dehydrate in your Open Country® Dehydrator approximately 3-5 hours. When chicken is done, it should be dry, with no moisture remaining, & break easily
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator - should last about 3 weeks. Excess can be frozen.
