Chicken Curry & Sultana Raisin Sandwich

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of this dish.  The flavor profiles of both wine and food are complex. The La Crema Monterey Chardonnay exhibits intense tropical fruit, like pineapple, and subtle hints of guava. 

The toasted almonds in this recipe will enhance the subtle oak in the wine while the sweet floral aromatics of the Madras curry set the stage for a vibrant combination of flavors.  Look for whole roasted chicken in your local grocery store to help reduce preparation time and make this recipe one of your all-time favorites.
