Chicken Parmesan & Wine In Key West

Still drinking the last bottle of Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc, I thought, hum, what would be a challenging dish to pair with this wine and see if it holds its own. Chicken Parmesan came to mind with a side of angel hair pasta with a mix of fresh herbs from my garden. Walla, dinner was born. Oyster Bay did hold its own even with the tomato sauce and fresh tomatoes that were incorporated with the chicken dish. Wanting to use up some fresh mozzarella that I still had left in the frig, we used that as our cheese instead of layering it with provolone. And of course since it is Chicken Parmesan, the dish was topped with a generous plop of grated Parmesan. The angel hair pasta was very easy to prepare with the addition of warm olive oil infused with garlic and a mix of fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme) from the garden. Ah!!!!
