(Save broth for making soup.) Grind chicken and all remaining ingredients together, alternating them as they go through the grinder. Mix well. Prepare four trays. Spread plastic wrap or parchment paper lengthwise over dehydrator tray, and tape each corner to tray with transparent or masking tape. Divide chicken mixture in four parts and spread one part on each lined tray about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Place trays in dehydrator to dry. Dry 6 to 8 hours.
