Wine Pairings for Grilled Chicken

Painting a world of flavors onto a grill-ready protein

Chicken is like the blank canvas of the culinary world. Mild and amenable, it’s an easy vehicle to bring global flavors to life. So this summer, instead of just slathering on the barbecue sauce, let your chicken take you to the far-flung corners of taste.

With so many choices to choose from, you can be adventurous and inventive when it comes to grilling chicken. The meat tends to pick up flavors from marinades quite quickly, and if you are careful to prevent the skin from burning, you can really get a well-distributed layer of flavors that adds something to every bite. And don’t forget to cook some extra when you do grill up chicken. (I don’t know about you, but leftover chicken is one of the few foods that seems better the second time around.) Temps are rising fast, so without further ado, let’s begin our global chicken grilling tour.
