Whole Grilled Chicken with Wilted Arugula
Such a simple recipe relies on using a good quality chicken—preferably one that is antibiotic free. It is worth paying more for a pasture-raised chicken that spent time outdoors because it has the most flavor.
One virtue of Thomas Keller's seasonally fresh menu is that red and white wines work equally well with it, so choose whichever you prefer. For a white, look for a Chardonnay from Napa Valley. If you prefer red, pick a Napa Valley Pinot Noir.
