FOOD Pairing The Right Wine With (NAPS)--No matter what you're cooking, and whether you're dining alone or enter- taining a crowd, the right wine can elevate a simple meal. Fortunately, selecting, serving and enjoying great wine doesn't have to be com- plicated or expensive if you join the right wine club. Consider this easy recipe and wine pairing tip provided by one of the oldest clubs arotmd. & WINE A Meal Can Make A Difference Grilled Chicken Makes 4 servings 4 large skinless, bone- less chicken breast halves 2 tablespoons olive oilTM 1 teaspoon dried rosemary 1 teaspbon dried thyme 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon chopped garlic teaspoon salt teaspoon ground black pepper Preheat grill to medium heat, pierce chicken sev- eral times with a fork. Place chicken into a resealable plastic bag and pour in olive oil Seal and shake bag to coat chicke add rosemary, thyme, oregano, garlic, salt and black popper to the bag, seal, and shake again to coat chicken with herbs. Grill chicken until the juices run clear and the meat thermometer in- serted into the thickest part of the meat reads at least 165 degrees F. Add fresh-squeezed lemon to finish the chicken= This works well with a bright, fresh, crisp white wine. According to the experts at The California Wine Club, top picks are New World Sauvi- gnon Blanc, Unoaked Call-. f0rnia Chardonnay, French Pinot Gris and Italian Pinot Grigio. Wines li~ these are meant to be uncorked and enjoyed while young, so look for newer vintages, 2011 or later, de- pending on the winemaker and region. The acidic level of the wine is what makes for a good food and wine pairing. The flavors of the food and wine should ~mplement each other, neither one overtaking the other and each becoming better because of the other.
