Friday the 13th - Our Lucky Day

We know we are looking very serious, but trust us, this is serious stuff.

The Momster won't buy us any products made in China any more, but we so love our jerky treats.  So after seeing lots of posts about making chicken jerky, she decided to try it.  We don't have a dehydrator (yet), but it is so easy to make in the oven.  Our only complaint is that it takes soooooooo long.

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced super thin.

Baked at 200 degrees for 2-3 hours in the oven.

Mom forgot to grease the sheet before she put down the chicken, but they really didn't stick too badly.  Next time she will remember AND she will make lots more.

The anticipation begins . . . 

Lightning can taste them from a distance.

Lightning:  Me first???

Thunder:  I would still prefer some steak on the grill, but go ahead, hit me with the jerky.

Ciara:  I don't mind waiting as long as you give me the biggest piece.

Phantom:  I came out of my bunker for this, so be sure to make it worthwhile, Mom.

And a little while later . . .

The others are all outside - can I have some more please???

We hope you all have lots of good luck come your way today too.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

OH! I am going to give a BIG HINT that SOMEONE needs to make these.

We are hoping for some rain but none of that nasty stuff this weekend. Hopefully your good luck will extend through tomorrow!

Madi and Mom said...

OMD/OMC may I be adopted into your family of Woos? I promise I don't eat much and I'll stay out of your way for the most part as long as you share your chicken jerky.
My mouth is watering as is my Moms
Hugs Madi and Mom

That looks SO good! I think I will go and make some too! Thanks for sharing, my friends! Enjoy your treats!

Marg said...

What a great Mom you have to cook those yummy chicken jerkies for all of you Woos. Good to see you.

Gus said...

We think your mom is super sonderful for making those jerky treats.

But, as an older brother, I must ask:

Don't you think that Thunder, as Senior Sibe (or Senor Sibe) should get the treats firstest? I do.


Lulu Louise said...

Wow, you guys have such a rad mom for making these for you!! I bet they were tasty. I tried to smell them through the screen, but alas, it didn't work. I guess I'll just have to imagine! Eat some for me!

Ms. ~K said...

Your Mom ROCKS! You all look quite pleased too!
Hoping our mom will give it a try!

GOOSE said...

Drooooool and Droooooool again. Your mom is great.

Kitty+Coco said...

Oooh, fancy! Your Mom knows the good stuff. We got a ton of jerky from China this Christmas and had to throw it all away. Such a bummer!


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OH that looks DELICIOUS. You could have your mom Spray some Cooling Racks.. and it will dry out a little Faster.

I'm not allowed to have the Chinese Jerky either.
PeeS... mom makes OURS in a dehydrator MOST of the time.. butt that takes 10 to 12 hours!!!

scotsmad said...

They look yummy...but they'll run out soon, get your mum making some more!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Mr. Pip said...

Those treats look SO YUMMY!!!! It looks like Kansas is going to have a stormy night. I hope you all stay safe and Phantom isn't too stressed!

Your pal, Pip

Amber DaWeenie said...

chicamom85 said...

Mrs. JP said...

looks like a good plan.

BeadedTail said...

That's a great idea to make jerky treats for you! Our mommy won't buy any either so now we know she can make them! Phantom, we'd give you whatever you wanted if you gave us those eyes!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...


PeeEssWoo: Mom got me some dukhk feet - Bricey says they are tasty and khrunchy and fun! I haven't had any yet but I'm pretty sure one will be part of my Saturday night - I'll let woo know how yummy they are!
PeePeeEssWoo: Paws khrossed the nasty storms won't find woo!

Lorenza said...

Homemade chicken jerky!
It is the best, right?
I complain about the same... the dehydrator also takes soooo long!
But the waiting sure worth it!
Happy friday to all of you!
Kisses and hugs

KB said...

Aw, I've never seen your four looking so raptly at you! They are a lucky quartet to have a momster who takes such good care of them!

I hope that Phantom got his extra piece. What a sweet dog he is.

24 Paws of Love said...

Nothing better than homemade. You guys were very lucky!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Thank you for sharing the recipe with us. My mom examines all the chicken jerkey at the store and she usually find little tiny words that say product of U.S.A but made or manufactured in china , so she will not buy it.
I want her to make this recipe for me.. and then I will beg for more- just like all of you are doing! I hope you get more!

Prancer Pie said...

What a great Mommy you have! We bet those 2-3 hours to cook were long ones! The smell must have been delish! Enjoy!

Jo's World said...

Hi you OP pups! My Mom said she would make me some just like yours did. Did she use those frozen chicken breasts you get in bags with a shot of water in them or does she use the ones that are on the meat counter? I don't think 2 hours at 200 is very long! Maybe it just seems that way while you are waiting.

Thanks for the tip! Cheers and hugs,
Jo, Stella and Zkhat

T. Maxx said...

YUMMY!!! What a Friday!!
Gotta get the momster to make me some of those!!


sprinkles said...

Do you add any spices or anything?

They do look good!

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

You puppies don't look like you're so good at waiting (we're not either when there are NOMs to be had)

The Musketeers said...

Mmmm mmm~ We got to get our humans working! You guys are lucky indeed ;)

Sarge said...

Wow, what a pawesome treat! I gotta talk to my Mom about this right away. I need that jerky NOW! Your header pix is beautiful...perfect for Spring.

ASTA said...

You certainly got some good luck with all those yummy jerky treats! I gotta get Jen to make me some.

I wonder how long they last. Do ya know? Well, not long if I got ahold of 'em, but ya know what I mean.

sagechronicles said...

Now that sounds like something I need to tell Mom about. MOOOOOOOOM They got home-made chicken jerky over at the Woos. Make some for me, please?

PS: Mom wonders whether parchment paper would work instead of foil?

houndstooth said...

Ooooo! I am definitely going to hound Mom to try making this for us! I'm drooling all over the keyboard here. And Phantom, maybe you should suggest that all your meals be made into jerky! ;)


Priscilla said...

Oh no, how could I miss out reading this post! Chicken jerky looks really yummy and I bet it was worth for the waiting.

Thanks for the tips, I'd better go pestering my mom right away.
