Perfect Pair: Garlic Chicken

This is a light red that pairs well with chicken.  This Barbera shows ample red fruit on the nose. It has silky tannins that give it a smooth mouthfeel. This freshness and approachability makes it a great wine for everyday drinking.   The company has 60 acres of vineyards and sources additional grapes from vineyards in Piedmont.

The Dish:  Garlic Chicken

The Recipe:

2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, butterflied
1 tablespoon dried herbs (thyme, rosemary, basil)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup white wine

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil.  Season the chicken with the herbs, salt and pepper.  Add chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes per side.  Add in the garlic.  Deglaze with the white wine.  Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes.  Serve.
