Chicken Parmesan Sliders Wine Pairing

Like Chicken Parmesan? You’ll want to try this easy variation for Parm-Style Chicken Sliders that you can find over at Prevention RD. Lean ground chicken is mixed with Parmesan, pizza sauce, and seasonings and grilled up into these tasty little sliders. They come together in as little as thirty minutes, so they’re perfect for a weeknight dinner. Add a glass of wine, and they’re even better.

Chianti Red Blend: Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva ~ $22

This Chianti red blend is a classic match for a meal like this. It has intense black cherries, spice, and some smoke aromas, along with some herbal notes. Full-bodied on the palate with lots of red berry fruit, this wine is hearty yet well balanced.

Malbec: Bodega Elena de Mendoza Malbec ~ $8

This Malbec is a good match for this flavorful chicken dish with intense aromas of blackberry fruit, dark cherries, dark chocolate, and even some leathery notes, with mild tannins and enough acidity to stand up to the pizza sauce. This is a great value for a crowd or a quiet weeknight, and you can buy several bottles at this price.

Malbec: Jelu Estate Malbec ~ $12

Here is another fruity Malbec option for these Chicken Parmesan Sliders. You’ll find dark berries and lots of cherry and plum aromas. It is full-bodied on the palate with some spice and smoky flavors that will match well with the grilled meat.

Merlot: Columbia Crest H3 Merlot ~ $14

You’ll find red and dark berry flavors on this Merlot (a mix of raspberries, cherries, and blackberries) with some fresh black pepper and dusty cocoa. It’s rich and velvety on the palate but not heavy in tannins, balancing smoothly with these flavorful sliders.

Nero d’Avola: Villa Pozzi Nero d’Avola ~ $9

Nero d’Avola is another Italian wine that pairs excellently with acidic red sauces like the one found in this dish, and it can also hold up to hearty meat dishes. This one is intense and perfumed with berries, herbs, vanilla, and spice characteristics. It’s full-bodied with some richness on the palate and has vibrant acidity, making it a good match for the tomato sauce found throughout this recipe.
