Dec 16, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

My family is from Macon, Georgia, so I have been fortunate to be raised on all the southern flavors.

njmcgrath_124,
Try a Merlot. When my husband drinks wine he likes that best so when I did my shopping for this recipe I grabbed a merlot, which is not too bitter, not too sweet, and more importantly not a bank breaker. I thought it really brought all the flavors together nicely and didn't leave a sharp scent while cooking. And by the way,...

My husband Loves spicy and so the spicier the better. So I tried this chicken with Zataran's Dirty Rice and it was a perfect match, in my opinion.He liked it so much he told me to print this recipe because he wanted me to make it again.
