Brined & Grilled Chicken

This is a fairly simple recipe for grilled chicken and to prove it, FineCooking.com also includes many finishing sauces to add the special touch to this recipe. With such a variety of sauces to choose from, I’m just going to focus on the main recipe, which features hints of juniper and lemon zest.

For whatever reason, that makes me totally think of Chardonnay here. The wood spice of oak-aged Chardonnay should be a great match for this dish; but if you want off the wall, check out some lightly aged Alsatian Pinot Gris! That should have a synergy of spice and sweetness that’ll blow your mind (at least the tiny part that controls your tongue).

    These are really good wines to pair with the chicken, but why not a beautiful rosé, or, as I like, a New World Pinot (from California rather than Oregon)? What do you think?

    A pinot noir from California, Oregon or Western Washington sounds good to me. We don't get pints from Western Washington every year, but when we do they are really good.
