"Contrary to popular opinion, cooking removes only a portion of the alcohol added to a dish, a much smaller portion than previously thought. Perhaps most interesting, 75% of the alcohol remains after flambeing. A whopping thirty-five percent (35%) of alcohol remains even after a dish has been simmered 30 minutes on the stove, according to a 2003 USDA study. Alcohol remains in a dish chemically, even when its taste in undetectable – a very important consideration for someone in sobriety or for those cooking for someone in sobriety.

"I will try this recipe soon because it sounds very good. This one tip may help with this dish. I use Reynolds Wrap Easy Release Non Stick for many recipes that may stick to a dish/pan/cookie sheet. It works great. Just be sure to use a cookie sheet or dish with sides as the chicken, vegetables, or what ever you are baking/broiling/roasting will slide off. It saves on the clean up and the amount of fat you consume."

"I use 1 jar of salsa and 1 can of no salt added chopped tomatoes. I use 2 cans of beans and use and empty bean can full of frozen corn. I use 4-6 skinless chicken breasts because they are lower in fat. I serve this over whole wheat pasta with shredded no fat/low fat cheddar cheese, no fat/low fat sour cream, and jalapenos. This recipe freezes great. I also freeze pasta and cheese. When I want a quick meal it's ready to heat up."
