Arrange 2 pounds of boneless skinless turkey breast flat on a baking sheet. Cover it with plastic wrap, and freeze it for 2 hours or until it's firm. Place the turkey on a cutting board, trim the fat and membranes, and slice it along the grain into strips a 1/4 inch long. Add 3/4 cup of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of chili-garlic paste and 2 teaspoons of dried red chili flakes to a baking dish, and mix until they're combined. Place the turkey strips in the marinade mixture, toss them until they're coated, and put them in the refrigerator covered for 12 hours, turning them occasionally.

Remove the turkey from the refrigerator, place it in a colander to drain the excess marinade, and let it sit for 30 minutes. Remove the racks in an oven, line the bottom of the oven with foil, and heat it to 165 F. Spray the racks with nonstick cooking spray, and arrange the turkey strips horizontally across them with a 1/2-inch gap in between each strip. Place the racks in the oven, and dehydrate the turkey for about 2 hours or until it's dry and dark. Dry an additional 30 minutes for chewier jerky.
