Default Order of progression/food rewards

Hi,

We got our 8 week old gsd pup about 5 days ago. I had been watching some training dvds about setting a marker with "yes" and giving the treat. I have started this with the sit command and he has learned this well (or just knows if he sits he will get the reward ). so im after advice what to do next, should it be the drop command? or learn sit further with some distractions?

also, im a bit concerned over the size of the rewards, i have just been using bbq chicken in small pieces, but by the time i have got him to do 15 commands or so, this amount of chicken is could be 1/4 of his nightly meal, is this ok? could i go further with more reward food to even bring it up to 1/2 his meal size so i can train for longer?


thanks
