It's hard to believe that the most awaited festive season is here. With Christmas just four days away, I am all set for welcoming my family and friends. We are having a Christmas party and that brings me to the tuff part - deciding on the menu. One safe bet among my family and friends is chicken and wine. So I decided on making Roasted Parmesan Chicken using CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay. Also, CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay is definitely one of the best you could have tasted.

Parmesan Chicken is my favorite ever since I tasted it at my friend's place. I quickly got her recipe and tried it at home. After making it a couple of times, I changed the way of preparation by adding chardonnay sauce and few other ingredients which made it taste better than the original version. So here is the recipe for Roasted Parmesan Chicken.

Roasted Parmesan Chicken

Ingredients List:

For Chicken:
  • Chicken Breast Fillets - 2 pieces
  • Dry breadcrumbs - 1 cup
  • Grated Parmesan cheese - Half cup
  • Thyme - 2 teaspoons (finely chopped)
  • Basil - 2 teaspoons (finely chopped)
  • Oregano - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Butter - As required to dip the chicken fillets
  • Salt - As needed
  • Sun-dried tomatoes - For garnish

For Chardonnay Butter Sauce:
  • Butter - 1/4 cup
  • CK Mondavi Chardonnay Wine - 1/4 cup
  • Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
  • Heavy cream - 1.5 cups
  • Sugar - As needed
  • Salt - As needed


Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Stir the breadcrumbs together with the Parmesan cheese, thyme, basil, oregano, pepper, and salt in a bowl.
Dip the chicken breast fillets in butter and press both sides over the breadcrumb mixture so that it sticks to the chicken.
Place the chicken breast fillets on the baking sheet and bake till the chicken is cooked (approximately 15 minutes on each side).
While the chicken is getting ready, prepare chardonnay butter sauce. Place a pan over medium heat and add butter. Once the butter melts, add CK Mondavi Chardonnay wine and cook it for a minute. Add in required amounts of lemon juice, sugar, salt as well as cream. Keep in on low heat for 10-12 minutes and mix when necessary till it becomes thick. Keep the Chardonnay butter sauce aside.
Once the chicken is cooked, pour the Chardonnay butter sauce over the roasted parmesan chicken and garnish with some sun-dried tomatoes and basil. You can even add mashed potatoes as a side to this yummy dish. Enjoy the feast along with CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay Wine.

Pairing Roasted Parmesan Chicken With CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay

CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay is a favorite of my husband and me. It has a hint of oak along with the aroma of lemon and citrus combined with flavors of apple and pear lead to a delightfully crisp finish. It is available in 750ml (Twist-Off capsule) & 1.5L. Chardonnay is a perfect pairing for soft cheese, cured meat, sweets, poultry, and fish. That made me use CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay to make the chardonnay sauce for creating Roasted Parmesan Chicken recipe as well as pair the delicious dish with this wine. The recipe turned out delicious and I am surely going to make this entree and serve it along with the CK Mondavi and Family Chardonnay for this year Christmas party. #CKMondaviHoliday
