Which wine is best to serve with Chicken ?!

Question: Which wine is best to serve with Chicken !?
think that depends on the flavors of your chicken and the salad dressing, but I found this really cool site you might find interesting and benefit from!.

In an effort to compare styles and types and so figure out which wines work best-and why-we sampled thirteen different ones (twelve whites and one rosé) with chicken salad on an especially steamy evening the other week!. Our favorites are recommended below, but this turned out to be the rare dish that worked with just about everything we tried!. True, some wines (a Chablis, a German kabinett Riesling, and an Italian bubbly from Trentino) were a bit too light for it, and a couple of others (an otherwise crisp South African Sauvignon Blanc and the rosé) seemed a tad clunky; but none of the wines we tried fell completely flat!. Who knew that store-bought chicken salad would be such a versatile partner for wine!?

There is no hard and fast rule!.

For Chicken, I prefer to choose the wine based on *how* the chicken is made!.

If it is a light dish, like an alfredo, where the chicken is baked I would go with a white wine!.

For a heartier dish, like Chicken Parm, I would go with a light red wine -- like a pinot noir!. Red sauce, red wine!. I think red sauce dominates over chicken!.

If you were going with a spicy chicken dish, you could get away with a full flavored white wine or a light-mid bodied red wine!. But, with spicy food I prefer an IPA beer over wine!. Actually, there are more styles of beer than wine varietals, so its easier to pair beer with food You also get to drink 2-3x as much without getting drunk!.

If the chicken is cooked with a wine, always use the same wine at the table!. If the sauce has a pinot blanc, put that on the table!. If it has Cabernet, use that!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

If you like dry white wine then that is what it should be!. If you like red wine then that is fine!. The old ideas!. from the French are just that, old!.
For a white wine try a Chilean or South African Chenin Blanc or a sauvingon blanc!. For a red wine try a South African Shiraz, there are plenty to choose from!. Merlot is also a nice fruity wine!. Argentinian red wines such as a Malbec are also nice to drink!. Buy from Tesco, Sainsbury's or M&SWww@FoodAQ@Com

generally the rule is white for chicken, but have whatever YOU think is best!. try a red, a white or a blush!. everybody's palate is different!. i like reds with everything!. if you are hosting people though, get a bottle of white and get a bottle of whatever you want, just in case you get some elitist prick who's like"oh my god! can you believe this barbarian served a red with chicken tetrazzini!"Www@FoodAQ@Com

Social graces books say '" white wine with white meat and red for red meat!. white meat could also be fish meat!." try that!. but you can't go wrong with beer either!. NO KIDDING!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sorry Lard, not red!. Whew -- glad I intervened!.

Definitely white!. Chardonnay or Chablis; maybe even a Pinot Grigio!.

How it's seasoned and cooked is VERY important!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

In theory it should be white but I prefer red wine with all foods or just on its own!. also red wine and dark chocolate is brill!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
