About the quick chicken & butter bean stew recipe

This fast chicken & butter bean stew is really brilliant, even if I say so myself. It is because of the simple combination of those few ingredients in this dish. If you prefer not to boil with alcohol, you can also replace the wine with chicken broth with a small dash of white wine vinegar. Also very tasty!

If you choose the white wine, it is good to keep in mind that not all alcohol evaporates. After more than 2 hours of stewing of dishes to which alcohol has been added, more than 90% of the alcohol has disappeared. With shorter heating, more alcohol remains: about 40% after 15 minutes of heating. So there is a little bit of alcohol left.

How can this dish be healthy ?! That is pretty simple. The Health Council advises not to drink alcohol or at least not more than one glass per day. Only 1 glass of white wine goes into this dish. That is half a glass per person. In addition, a portion of the alcohol evaporates. So it's really just a little bit of alcohol and that's why this dish still fits perfectly in a healthy diet.
