Recipe Date:
September 13, 2014
Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 2 1/2 lbs Chicken Thighs, Skin On
  • 1/2 cup Lime Juice, Fresh
  • 3 tsps Lime Zest
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsps Fresh Cilantro, Finely Chopped
  • 2 Jalepeños, Finely Chopped

Pairing Notes: While pairing wines with hot and spicy foods can be a daunting task, the 2013 Greenwood Ridge Riesling is perfect for this exotic dish. While the Riesling is dry, the bright fruit notes give a perception of sweetness. The crisp acidity of the wine lifts the dish and brightens the flavors.

Chef’s Tip:

Feel free to substitute chicken breasts for the thighs specified in the recipe; you can also customize the spice level by adding or subtracting jalapeños.
