Delightfully salty and lemony, this dish uses dark meat from the chicken, which is best suited for braises. Be sure to use bone-in thighs for outstanding flavor.
Beef chuck is from the shoulder, a hard-working flavorful muscle that requires long cooking to become tender so the flavor can really be appreciated.
The juice for Maize Valley’s Chardonnay comes from Washington State. It’s just another example of the farm’s attempts to maintain diversity in what it can offer visitors who arrive all year long to sip and sample wines. Chardonnay can be produced into wines that range from dessert sweet to deliciously dry. This one is buttery, slightly oaky with hints of vanilla and buddies up beautifully with this delicious Caponata, a Sicilian appetizer or side dish, especially nice with roasted chicken.
