"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

This is an easy and popular recipe. Can use beef, black beans as alternatives to chicken. Omit the oil to save calories if using non-stick pans.
