Chicken is a delicious, nutritious, and affordable staple found in most kitchens. No wonder there’s a whole month devoted to this classic protein. In honor of National Chicken Month, let’s talk chicken and Missouri wine!

Cooking Chicken with Missouri Wine

Cooking with wine can add flavor and depth to your dishes. (Not to mention it gives you an excuse to open a bottle of wine and enjoy a glass while you’re cooking.) Wine is used in three primary ways when cooking… as a marinade ingredient, a cooking liquid (think simmer or braise), and flavoring in finished dishes (sauces, primarily).
