Did someone say wine and chicken? My Red Wine Roast Chicken is the perfect meal to throw together for easy entertaining or as a mid week one pot wonder. Drinking and cooking with great wine is doubly delicious… a little for me and a little for the chicken! For lovers of Spanish wine, I’ve teamed Edenvale Tempranillo Cab Sav with a tasty Roast Chicken, with crispy kipfler potatoes and carrots… Did you know that Edenvale alcohol removed wines are a “functional food”? That means they have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition – low in calories and high in antioxidants! You would almost feel guilty for not enjoying a glass or two.
