honey beet jerky dog treat recipe


  • 2 to 3 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 1/2 cup pureed Beets*
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped Thyme Leaves
  • 2 cups Water or more as needed


  • Mix pureed beets, honey and thyme leaves with water until smooth, set aside
  • Clean the chicken breast and cut into strips, removing all the fat you can from the meat. It is easier to cut if you freeze the chicken slightly.
  • Place chicken strips into the beet marinade and allow to marinate for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Place on a cookie sheet 1/2 inches apart, brush with marinade for additional flavor, sprinkle tops with thyme.
  • Dry in an oven, with the door slightly open to let out moisture, for about 3 to 4 hours, until meat is dry appearance and texture


*I used canned sliced beets. A 15 ounce can yielded 1 1/2 cup of puree.
**If you have a food dehydrator that can be used to dry the meat as well, just follow the manufactures instructions.
