Great Grilled Chickens!

Moroccan Style

If you're looking for a spiced, yet not spicy recipe for grilled chicken be inspired by this Moroccan example. With layers of spicy flavors and just a suggestion of sugar and heat, it's a fabulous recipe with which to introduce your palate to a bit of the exotic this year.

Take me to the recipe

This is actually a fairly difficult dish to pair with wine. It's complex and spicy, but with the subtle flavor of chicken underneath and finding a pairing that doesn't completely cover that flavor is the challenge. A really bold rose could be in order here, something with big flavors, but that retains the delicacy of a classic rose.  Or you can take a different tact and get a really fine bottle of Valpolicella, which has that delicacy but can also have a wonderfully spicy character on the palate along with pure, transparent fruit that marries well with the flavor profile here.

Two to try:

Tedeschi Valpolicella Classico Lucchine $15

Speri Valpolicella Classico Superiore la Roverina $16
