Stephen, my calculations used the large size Packit Gourmet FD meat container (16 oz. chicken, 24 oz. hamburger), not the small. I was also comparing to the highest quality canned chicken (Winco prices) and to extra-extra lean ground beef. I have a lot of meals to prepare and using the FD meat will save me a LOT of time and electricity. Sarah, thanks--I'm glad I didn't calculate wrong!
Home dehydrated chicken does come out pretty crunchy. I suggest running it through the blender or food processor after dehydrating.
