Recommendations on what type of white wine to use for cooking in general and with chicken.

When a recipe calls for white wine is there a certain type in particular that is best to use?

Best answer:

Answer by yitogwa
Any type of white wine would go fine with the chicken.

A wine added to a meal does not make a significant difference. After-all, while cooking, the alcohol is cooked out of the food, leaving only a small flavor in the food.

  1. IT IS A FOOLPROOF, I always buy the cheapest white wine that I use for my cooking. It will boil down to same thing

  2. If a recipe calls for dry white wine, the best all-around choice is a quality American Sauvignon Blanc. This wine will be very dry and offer a fresh light herbal tilt that will enhance nearly any dish.

    If the dish has bold or spicy flavors, go for a more aromatic white wine. Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Viognier all have dynamic fruity flavors and exotic floral aromas that counterbalance heavily spiced dishes

  3. Any dry white wine which is good enough to drink is good for cooking. I usually choose an inexpensive such as Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc, altho there is a just a touch of sweetness to it.

  4. FInd the cheapest white wine you can find….$ 1.99/bottle at trader Joes..
    Never buy the expensive “cooking wine”. They add a lot of soduim to it. You don’t need that to prepare a delicious meal.

  5. I have to say that the golden rule I have when cooking with wine is to never us a cheap wine that I wouldn’t drink. I mean, it kinda makes sense….if I wouldn’t drink a wine because I don’t like the taste then why would I like it when my chicken tastes of it?
    I’m not saying you have to cook with an expensive wine or god forbid with cooking wine.
    Most recipes call for 1 glass of wine max, so I say enjoy the rest of the bottle with the meal and the flavours don’t clash 🙂

  6. with white wine thers not a big difference in flavor. but whatever you do only cook with wine you would drink. some “cooking” wines can make a meal taste funky.

  7. It depends on what you are cooking. For chicken marsala, use marsala wine, it imparts a particular flavor that the recipe is looking for. I love to use leftover Reisling in anything chicken baked, roasted, crockpot, sauces, gravies, etc.
    Rule of thumb for cooking with wine is never cook with a wine that you wouldn’t drink.
    Rules are meant to be broken. I wouldn’t drink a tablespoon of marsala, but I also wouldn’t use a wine that I opened and deemed to be too dry or tart or bitter to drink just to use it up.
