Chicken and Corn

Simple meal last night that was nothing more than chicken and corn, a small salad and two good glasses of wine.

The chicken was a bone in, skin on, breast half. We sauteed a chopped strip of bacon, then mixed that with some chopped fresh basil and some grate Asiago cheese. That mixture was stuffed under the skin of the chicken. We tossed on a little salt and pepper and put the whole thing on the grill over medium heat, popped on the grill lid, and let it grill bake until it golden brown and done. The corn was par boiled inside and then thrown on the grill for the last few minutes of cooking / baking. Very good meal.

The wine was a 2007 Gianfranco Allesandrio Dolcetto D'Alba which has been discussed here more than a couple of times. For $14 it is difficult to beat. Lots of forward fruit and acid with just the right amount of tannin to balance everything out.

Dessert was store bought chocolate almond biscotti, dipped in the last glass of wine.
