Chicken can pair well with white or red wine. Depending on the flavors in the dish and your taste buds, the wine will be selected for you. With the all the colors in this dish, go with a Burgundy due to acidity and structure in the wine. Burgundy goes with ALL birds. Suggestion: Louis Chevallier Pinot Noir, Burgundy, France
