Finally, serve the chicken with rice and enjoy it with your family.


Hi Bernice!! EXCELLENT work! You give very good instructions. Just be careful not to assume that people know what to do. (How do you clean the chicken?)

Also, the first time I read this I thought that you were baking the chicken in the oven. I changed your wording to "stove top" so that people will not confuse stove (on top of the stove burner) with in the stove.

Great work! I'd like to see an essay Bernice!! Go to Lesson number 5 and choose one of the essay topics there. Have fun and keep up the good work!
