BYTE this

So. It is hot outside, and summer is making an early appearance. I decided to help the mama cook. (I like samples and I like the smells that come from the kitchen. In fact, that is my favorite room.) This cooking thing is a complicated deal! But you get to wear a hat, you get to look at books with pictures of food, and then you get to take lots of stuff from the refrigerator and the pantry and after you make it all messy, you get to taste the samples. Really. My most favorite snack we made was CHICKEN BREAST JERKY TREATS. The only bad part is that it took a long long time for them to get done, but oh so worth it! I love them. If you want to try them, follow the directions below. Good luck and you should double the recipe and send me some!

Step one. Have your 2legged one open the fridge and take out the chicken breasts.
Step two. Tell them to slice the chicken breasts into thin strips;
Step three. Then tell them to lightly season with some salt and toss.

Step four. Place the strips on a non-stick or greased cookie sheet- Mama likes her silpat for this;

Step five. (and this is the longest step!!!!!) bake in the oven at 180 degrees overnight or for several hours during the day - it will be jerky when done!

Step six. Let the chicken cool before placing in plastic bags; and freeze some for later.

Step seven. The most important step! Feed some immediately to your Bichon taste taster. If they are not available, feed me some!

Step five took so long I fell asleep waiting for the treats!

But when these treats are done they scream BYTE Me!!!!

Remember, you are what you eat!

P.S. These are SAFE, healthy, low fat and....delicious!

These chicken breast jerky treats sound so good! Help - we are turning orange from baby carrot snacks. We will ask our Mom to make a tiny bit of this for us. Love, Rocket, Benny, and Vickie
