This tasted pretty good. Next time I make this I will make the following changes. First, Ill slice the turkey meat when it is partially frozen. It will be easier to get uniform long strips. Next, Ill marinate the turkey in the seasonings longer. I marinated it for a couple of hours and it didnt seem to pick up enough flavor for me. I might try adding a dash of liquid smoke or something to this. Lastly, Ill spray the racks with cooking spray first. I dont know how well this will work after it has been in the over for four hours, but Ill give it a try. I cooked mine for 4 hours at 170. Ill try this again sometime

I used two breasts that were partially frozen which made for easy (thin) slicing. I prefer teriyaki to soy so I marinated the turkey slices in teriyaki with a little honey over night. Stuck them in the oven at 9:00 a.m. at 170 (lowest setting on the stove) and pulled the jerky out at 2:00. It is great. This is a recipe that you could use whatever your favorite seasonings are. You can also take it out of the oven when you want to. I know that some people like their jerky really dry and others like it more moist. Thanks for this great recipe.

TWO days ago my daughter called and asked me to make her some "jerky". Not having any recipes for this, I've been scrambling. Well, today, here it is and with turkey; not the usual beef. Well, AllRecipes, you've done it again. Many thanks!
