Clucking Jerky

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My wife asks me the other day "I wonder how chicken breast would be for jerky?", I reply "No idea, let's try it!". These were some good sized chicken breasts!



So we ground up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for ground jerky in the Honey BBQ flavor... and then sliced up 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast for whole muscle jerky in the Sweet & Spicy flavor. Both the ground and the whole muscle chicken jerky got a combination of maple/hickory/cherry smoke while on the grill, indirect at 150º.





Honey BBQ Ground Chicken Jerky



Sweet & Spicy Whole Muscle Chicken Jerky



End results were that chicken sure makes for a lighter color jerky and the taste is all there, a little more chewy but for the price when chicken goes on sale would definitely make it again!

Thanks for looking!

NICE!!! I meant to try chicken jerky a long time ago and never got around to it...I've cured and smoked chicken for chef snacking experiments...just never dried it for jerky. Hmm, wonder how dark meat would be for texture...

 

I do really like the idea...flavor should be more intense as with any other dried & cured meat.

 

Thanks for sharing!!!

Looks and sounds great. How did the ground vs. whole muscle compare?

Difficult for me to answer, I prefer whole muscle myself no matter what kind of meat!

Looks tasty!

Whole meat turkey and chicken jerky is a favorite around here. Instead of slicing the breasts I like to pins them flat.

Around 7 to 7 1/2 hours till the last piece was coming off the grill.
