"This dish covers all of the taste bases. It’s got the umami of crispy chicken skin, the herbaceousness of cilantro and onions, and even a hint of vinegar. This is a satisfying chicken dish. If you want to add more flavor, try adding a bit of cumin while the chicken is cooking. It will give a nice earthy note to the dish. Chicken is excellent with white wine. I’d suggest an aromatic white with this dish. Here are our suggestions below. *Torrontes *Viognier *Albariño *Roussanne *Marsanne "
