Although this chicken recipe may be light and refreshing, the bold citrus flavours provide the need for strong drinks to match; holding their own against the zesty taste of the lemon chicken.
For whites it has to be a Sauvignon Blanc, with a medium-body and crisp, refreshing flavour, this wine pairs well with the citrus tone of the dish.
In terms of rose, you need to go dry with something like a Grenache which provides a fruity aromatic flavour and a light body - perfect if enjoying this dish in the first of the spring sunshine.
When it comes to red, try a Red Burgundy. As a very flexible wine it offers high acidity, medium body and low tannins; making it perfect for white meats.
It is important to find a beer that suits the citrus flavours on offer in this recipe, therefore we’d recommend something like the Haymaker beer from Hooky Norton Brewery which works well with lemon dishes, making it the ideal choice for this month’s recipe.
With citrus fruit taking the lead on this one, it has to be time for some homemade lemonade using fresh lemons, sugar and water. The perfect accompaniment to this tangy chicken.
