My Market Kitchen: Teriyaki Chicken
We're back for Channel 10's My Market Kitchen for a food and wine adventure with hosts Laura Sharrad and Mike Reid! On this episode, we venture into the Yarra Valley and Limestone Coast to explore what these regions have to offer.
Laura shows us how to put together a unique take on Teriyaki Chicken that includes pineapple, while Adam suggest two light bodied reds he think will pair nicely with the complex flavours in this dish. These may not be your go to wines for this dish, but Adam knows these wines will work with the depth and flavours in the Teriyaki Chicken.
While Laura creates this vibrant and fresh Teriyaki Chicken recipe, Adam suggests a perfect wine pairing of De Bortoli the Estate Vineyard Gamay 2019 and Wangolina Mencia 2021. You can tune in at 3:30pm weekdays on Channel 10 - start cooking!
