Homemade chicken jerky with nori

This must be the easiest dog treats recipe ever to make at home and a super healthy  snack your pups will be begging for more!

With only 5 mins to prep the only downside is it’s not the fastest dog treat to make.  It  takes 3 hours in a very low oven or 8 hours in a dehydrator – s0 best to make when doing something else.  So plan a 3 hour blitz on something at home!  Maybe the garden or if you are anything like me – decluttering or catching up with paper work!! 🙂

This is a wonderful protein treat to give as a healthy dog treat or it is excellent for those pups that don’t like a biscuit treat or may have an allergy.  Not to mention as an excellent training treat. Or to give as a special doggie treat gift.

I’ve use free range chicken here and decided to flavour with nori (kelp)  which has heaps of health benefits for dogs.


  • Rich in iron
  • Great for skin and tissue repair
  • High in Vit B 12
  • Good source of Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Contains magnesium




1 357g free range chicken breast, finely sliced

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp crushed nori


Preheat oven at 110 degrees Celsius.  (I used my dehydrator – took 8 hours)

Place the finely sliced chicken breast in a bowl, pour over the oil and stir with a spoon to combine, then sprinkle over the nori and continue to stir.

Put seasoned chicken onto a baking tray lined with a sheet of baking paper for easy cleaning, place evenly spaced and bake for 3 hours or until cooked through and crunchy.

Once cooled, store in an airtight container and they will keep well in the fridge for up to two weeks as they have no preservatives.

You could try dehydrating other proteins such as:

  • Beef
  • Fish
  • Kangaroo
  • Goat
  • Venison, etc.

Other flavours to add:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Parley
  • Sage.

Or else go with no additional flavouring, just chicken is fine.  Best to give a spray with oil, (I’ve added a Tbsp of olive oil).

If time is not on your side, we make an excellent dehydrated Dog chips N Chia, which is like crack to dogs – but in a healthy kinda way – Always, always – everything in moderation!
