Tonight for dinner, I made chicken Swedish meatballs and we paired it with a 2008 Chateau Ste. Michelle Ethos Chardonnay Reserve.

The Swedish meatballs recipe came courtesy of Cooking Light. I’ve made it many times before, however, usually instead of the rye bread, I use a garlic bread produced by our local supermarket. This time, I used sourdough bread. While the recipe was still quite delicious, it wasn’t as spectacular as it had been in the past.

Because the sauce is based on light sour cream, the creamy texture of the Chardonnay was lovely. The sauce helped to bring out the buttery qualities of the Chateau Chardonnay. This pairing is highly recommended (and the recipe is even lower in fat than you would think!)
