Internationally acclaimed chicken restaurant Nando’s Peri-Peri is providing a dinner bailout to government workers furloughed in the White House-GOP showdown over Obamacare.

The company, which has several stores in the Washington area, is offering a "Boneless Chicken, Spineless Congress" offer of a free butterflied chicken breast to all "non-essential" workers.

"Nando's wants to soothe the ruffled feathers of government workers hurt by the shutdown," Burton Heiss, CEO of Nando's Peri-Peri USA, told Secrets.

All furloughed workers have to do is visit Nando's Facebook page to redeem the one-day offer.

"Members of Congress need not apply,” said the firm.
