Cakebread Chicken

So, I needed to cook a chicken today, more for the carcass/bones (making stock) than the actual chicken.  So I found an opened bottle of Cakebread Chardonnay sitting in the fridge, and then saw my beer-can chicken pedestal, and got the idea.  Rubbed the chicken down heavily with butter, stuffed some pieces into the breast, and then filled the pedestal with the chardonnay and a hunk of butter.  It's sitting on the Egg (filled with cherry) at ~350.  Will let you know how it turns out.

  • wow- that is a nice chard to be beer can cooking with. I'm afraid that would have gone in the cook's gullet and I would have found something, perhaps a little "boxier" to cook with :)

  • We belong to the white wine club and since 1/2 of our house was pregnant this year, we have a stockpile.  Opened it up for guests earlier this week and it sat open in the fridge for 6 days.  It smells fantastic on the Egg.

  • ah- after 6 days, I would have cooked with it too...... but that never would have happened :D

     The inside of my refrigerator wouldn't know what a 1/2 bottle Cakebread looked like  ;)
