Rosemary and Clementine Roast Chicken Pairedwith Rendez-vous Chardonnay, Clarksburg,California.
I would like to point-outthat this recipe made myhouse smell AMAZING!Of course, that wasn’t thebest thing about the meal,but it’s always a pleasantbyproduct!I have to admit that I’musually pretty lazy when itcomes to roasting a wholechicken, and I’m sure I’mnot theonly one (
I’mtalking about you
)! Thechickens that enter myhouse, 99% of the time,are entering alreadyroasted i.e. I buy themthat way. I actually
used 
to roast whole chicken alot more when I firstmoved to this country, for the main reason that wedidn’t have much cash(since I wasn’t“legally”allowed to work for the first 6 months). Whole chickens are extremely inexpensive (almosttooinexpensive, in-fact), with the additional bonus being that you can at least get another meal’sworth of leftovers out of them. I think the only reason people don’t buy whole chickens as much asthey probably should, is that they don’t feel comfortable carving it, either before or after it’scooked.
 
Have you ever stuffed clementines into a chickenbefore?
No, me neither…
Chicken is so very easy to overcook, and mostpeople do! The beauty with this recipe is that dueto the way it’s being roasted, and theclementine/chicken stock combo, it’sEXTREMELY difficult to dry this bird out!Wine time! I’ve already reviewed the
Rendez-vous Chenin Blanc
, but in case your missed it, letme catch you up on the story:The founder of the
Rendez-vous Winery
is Larry Dizmang….
actually…..
Dr. Larry Dizmang M.D.(psychiatrist), as he is more formally known! The doctoralong with his wife Evie (a clinical socialworker)were the original founders of 
Folie a Deux
(you’ve no-doubt seen theMenage a Troislabel). He sold the winery (which had initially been converted from a former sheep ranch) in 1995,and at its peak was producing around 20,000 cases. It’s interesting to note that the name“Folie aDeux”is themedical term used to describe two people who share the same delusion. In this case,
 
it’s making wine!There’s a healthy helping of tropical fruit in the
Rendez-vous Chardonnay
, with pineapple, peachand mango dominating. In that respect, if you decide to give this recipe a shot, you could quiteeasily mix-up what you are stuffing your chicken with. Maybe throw-in some pineapple or apricots,for example.There’s also a little residual sweetness in the wine, which found a perfect place with the honeyglaze on the chicken, so feel free to apply an ample amount of honey-glaze to the skin of thechicken.The Rendez-vous does see oak, but it’s in harmony with the cream, vanilla and butter-coveredpopcorn, and is easily balanced with the fruit. Finishes long.
