Incorporating wine into your cooking will not only make you feel like a pro in the kitchen but will also add delicious flavors to your dinner. Sauvignon Blanc white wine is one of the most popular wines to cook with. Here are a few ideas on how to use it. 

Lemon and Herb Chicken

Sauvignon Blanc’s citrus and herbal taste will go very well with a lemon and herb chicken dish. 

How To Use:

Start by sauteing chicken breasts or thighs in olive oil until browned. Then, deglaze the pan with a cup of Sauvignon Blanc, scraping up any browned bits. Add fresh lemon juice, minced garlic, and some fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary, and parsley. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, and the sauce is reduced and flavorful. Enjoy!

Shrimp Scampi 

Sauvignon Blanc also works well in shrimp scampi, where its citrus notes complement the shrimp and garlic. 

How To Use:

Sauté jumbo shrimp in a pan with butter, olive oil, and minced garlic until they turn pink and are slightly caramelized. Then, pour in a cup of Sauvignon Blanc. Let it simmer until it’s reduced by half. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, and a handful of chopped fresh parsley. Toss the shrimp in the sauce and serve over linguine. Yum!
