For this dish an aromatic white with depth, texture and balanced acidity is needed to stand up to the complexity of the flavours but not dominate the chicken. Pinot Gris is a solid choice. The variety has clean layers of tropical and stone fruits that will accompany the spices, fresh acidity that will clean up the coconut milk, and a textured mouthfeel that will highlight the lighter elements in the dish. Like any curry, the flavours in this recipe develop if you cook it a few hours, or even the day before eating. If preferred, replace some of the coconut milk with chicken stock for a lighter finish.
