Ginger Roasted Chicken With Red Wine Plum Sauce #SundaySupper


My Sunday Supper team has partnered with Schlossadler International Wines and we are all cooking dishes and pairing it one of their fabulous wines !   Fruity, dry wines from  The Wine Club by Schlossadler Wines. Some of us like myself  are cooking with wine too. I love cooking with wine.  It adds aroma, richness to the dish and helps intensify the flavor of food. As with any seasoning used in cooking, care should be taken in the amount of wine used. Using  too little is inconsequential and too much will be overpowering. Neither extreme is desirable. A small quantity of wine will enhance the flavor of the dish. I made this rich savoury, fruity sauce with red wine, plums and cherries.  I spiced it up with a hint of paprika and dry red chilli flakes….  tasted sweetly exotic!  Scoop it over some mildly spiced ginger chicken, serve over a bed of brown rice and green beans  and you have a complete meal. The sauce is a perfect foil for the mildly spiced ginger chicken. Pair this with a dry fruity  red wine like 2010  Ernst Holler, Blaufrankisch, Burgenland and the meal is complete.
