"Art is science made clear."
The traditional version of this uses whole chicken pieces, and if you use them with the skin on, it will add about 75 to 100 calories to each serving. I prefer the boneless, skinless chicken thighs because they have all the savory flavor, but fewer calories - and you don't have to fight with your food.
Cooking with the best quality ingredients results in the best quality dish. This is so important with your choice of wine. For white wines choose a chardonnay in recipes that are rich or savory and a dry sauvignon blanc for tart or acidic recipes.
Full bodied reds like cabernet are the choice for a stews or rich sauces. When I am making a dish that requires a little more finesse I might choose a young pinot noir.
