Wine Pairings

Pair it with: An organic French white.
This brilliant Languedoc chardonnay certainly delivers, especially at this price. The bouquet is pears, tangerine and fresh brioche, while the taste is all ripe, creamy fruit. Just the thing to pair with this honeyed and herbed chicken.

Our Pick: Gilles Louvet O Chardonnay, France, $14.

Serving tip: We garnished our plate with beautiful raw baby kale.
