Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Rotisserie Chicken can be paired with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. Lean, light meat poulty is best paired with crisp white wines like sauvignon blanc. Dark meat can work with riesling, or even a red wine like pinot noir. The MacMurray Ranch Russian River Pinot Noir with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 24 dollars per bottle.

MacMurray Ranch Russian River Pinot Noir

Our MacMurray Ranch 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir opens with aromas of lavender and boysenberry that give way to flavors of dark cherry and pomegranate. This luscious wine has a silky mouthfeel, framed by subtle hints of oak from barrel aging.

Tips

Health Tips

  • To make this recipe more nutritious, skip the iceberg lettuce and choose some darker leafy greens higher in vitamin K like romaine, kale, spinach, etc.

  • Lycopene, the chemical in tomatoes that makes them red (and healthy), is fat soluble. This means eating tomatoes with a fat — say, avocado or olive oil?improves the body's ability to absorb the lycopene. Don't hesitate to include some healthy fats in this dish to get the most health benefits from the tomatoes!

Cooking Tips

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Just a head's up: tomatoes shouldn't be refrigerated! They will lose their flavor and probably get mushy too. For more on selecting and storing tomatoes and other vegetables, check out the academy.

Green Tips

  • Tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes, should be bought organic when possible. Moreover, buying tomatoes from your local farmers' market when they are in season is going to make your dish much, much tastier, not to mention more eco-friendly. In fact, we recommend using canned — or better yet, jarred?tomato products when tomatoes aren't in season instead of buying imported or greenhouse-grown tomatoes.
