Do I really need insurance for my HOME?
Short answer — YES.
We all know Mother Nature doesn't discriminate when it comes to doling out sunshine or rain, tranquility or chaos. So unless you've got a rare species of money tree growing in your yard, you need to invest in property insurance — Kim Jordan explains . . .
Slow-cooked, beer-braised chicken
Delicious dinner for four — easy prep for these shorter days...
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
- 2 links of smoked sausage
- 1 finely chopped onion
- 2 chopped red peppers
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 1 can of diced green chilies
- 2 tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon of chili powder
- 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoons of thyme
- ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon of Mediterranean sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon of fresh ground pepper
- 12 ounces of your favorite beer or cider
- ¼ cup of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of corn starch
- 4 servings of cooked brown or white rice
- 4 buttered slices of your favorite bread
- Scatter the onions in the bottom of your slow-cooker.
- Then, layer the red peppers, smoked sausage, tomatoes, green chilies, hot sauce, chili powder, paprika, thyme, cayenne pepper, sea salt, and ground pepper.
- Slowly add the beer.
- Submerge the chicken into the mixture.
- Cook on low for about 7 to 8 hours (or on high for about 3½ to 4 hours).
- At the 7-hour mark, stir in the water and corn starch mixture.
- Cook on high for an additional 20 to 30 minutes — just until the sauce thickens. If the sauce gets too thick, add water. If the sauce fails to thicken, leave the lid off for a bit.
Serve atop your favorite rice, with a side of buttered bread . . . enjoy!
