The president would like to see Republican lawmakers pass bills to create jobs - because the economy is still recovering slowly. It appears that the lawmakers are not cooperating.
Mitch McConnell: "The single most important thing is for Obama to be a one-term president". Where does passing legislation to help the American people fall on his list of important things?
Deadlock Drunken Chicken with Rice
If your job is to support your family, do it with a delicious dinner.
1 cut-up frying chicken (8 pieces, about 3 to 3-1/2 lbs.)
2 shallots, chopped
1 cup low-sodium chicken stock or broth
1/2 cup beer
1 cup long grain white rice
Heat large skillet on medium high; add oil and chicken. Brown chicken on both sides, about 5 minutes per side, seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add onion to skillet. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender.
Add stock, beer and rice. Bring to boil. Place chicken on top of rice, cover skillet and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and rice is tender.
Replace beer with white wine.
Adding vegetables to the rice mixture is not recommended due to the long cooking time for the chicken. I have found that this dish is best served with a crisp salad on the side.
