Wine Pairings

This chardonnay offers just a touch of toasty oak that complements but doesn’t overwhelm the delicate fruit and spice of Sticky Honey-Ginger Chicken. It’s brisk and clean with pear and citrus, followed by a silky finish. Plus, it’s a bargain!
Kressmann Selection Chardonnay, France, $9.

  1. I have made this recipe many times and it is amazing. The chicken stays extremely moist and the honey leaves a fabulous light crispiness…one of my all time favorite recipes and so easy to make!


  2. Delicious chicken, moist and flavourful. Will make this recipe again.
