The recipe only requires 2-4 chicken breasts and makes for a healthy, filling and strengthening meal option for your pet. You have to keep your oven temperature set at 200 degrees Fahrenheit well in advance for this to work. In addition, you should pare off all extra fat layers from the chicken breasts along with slicing it into thick strips of approximately 1/6th of 1/8th inches with a suitable knife. These strips should be baked comprehensively for about a couple of hours before it is ready to be served. The strips should never be really soft and the hardness of texture is what you should aim at. Allow the strips to cool down for some time before serving them to your pet. These strips can be stored for a couple of weeks in airtight containers as well. 2.
