Dehydrated CHIKKUN! A Recipe.


Gorging Grizz here.
Many of you requested instructions for your servants learn how to make delectable dehydrated chikkun jerky.

Here's how:

First we get Mommy, particularly when she's already hot and sweaty and still in her yoga clothes, to fire up the big (Scouty) stew pot filled with water and a tablespoon of salt.  While she waits for the water to boil she trims off the gross fatty bits (which make the water foam like crazy) from the boneless skinless chix titz--and shoos cats off the counter.

Then she boils them up, about six at a time, 10 minutes per batch. And shoos cats off the counter.

At this point Mommy gets tired of shooing so she minces up some steaming Sacrificial Chikkun for us, burning her fingers.  Which we reject, in favor of this: 
Licking the chikkun slices!

For which we are, once again, shooed, apparently for disturbing the avian artistic array. 

After the titz cool on a rack for a half hour or so Mommy thinly slices them and puts them the dehydrator rack, and after 6-7 hours at 135℉ we have Incomparable Nomminess!

At this point we swat do the Self-Shooing Shuffle to optimize distribution...

So, to summarize:

trim and boil boneless skinless chicken breasts in salted water for about 10 minutes (shoo)
cool--counter (shoo) or refrigerator (delayed shooing)
slice about 3/16" (3-4 mm) thick (activate extreme shooing skillz)
dehydrate until almost crisp

Bon Appetit!

Happy Thursday!

  1. Ahhh, nothin says lovin like chick titz in the dehydrator oven!

  2. Boy, that looks nummy.

    I'm off to make blue & green popcorn balls for our SOOPERBOWL PARTY tomorrow at work. GO HAWKS!!!

    :-) T.

  3. what's a dehydrator rack and where might a human find one? I'm thinking for my favorite apple chips! xoxo

  4. Yum! I've had these and they are tasty! My human needs to get a dehydrator!

  5. A bit of a shoo-in for the chickenfest!!!

  6. Oh Grizz - you have such a good mommy. Tell her thanks for the instructions.

  7. Hmmm, the hubby has been thinking about getting a dehydrator...maybe if I give him this recipe, he may want to make chicken tit snacks for Chuck and Angel, since Chuck cannot eat kibble...ever...due to constipation issues. Hmmm...

  8. You lucky bunch!
    Mummy and Daddy are vegan..this would make them we have a 'cat in hell's chance' of ever getting this.
    The REAL Maple Syrup Mob xxxxx

  9. Awesome--we will have to try this!

  10. the boyz want to know if there is room for them to move into the lounge.

    1. Dave, why not? three more won't make any difference and I'll bet Trish will never notice (or Scott either). haha!!

  11. omg, that is hilarious. I, too, am very aware of the shoo-shuffle, but normally they are all hovering around my feet. Invariably one of them gets a tail stepped on and squalls, which sends them all running! Then I feel bad and have to call them all back to give them treats. I guess I need to get me a dehydrator and make the chikkun titz jerky for my 12.

  12. We need to get a dehydrator and make these stat!

  13. Oh yum! You kitties are so lucky to have such yummy treat!

  14. Yay! I'm glad you posted these directions. I am assuming boiling the chicken takes care of any salmonella issues? Next time chicken is on sale, I'm going for it. Someone gave me a like new dehydrator. Thank you!


  15. Ummm Mom needs to get on of them dehydrating racks!

  16. That's a pretty simple recipe Grizz...I'm sure my cats would say even I could do it. If I had a dehydrator that is. Sigh, I see another piece of kitchen equipment in my future. Anything for the cats, right? :)
