    Kat's Mom's Note:

    We love the San Sebastian Winery in St. Augustine, Florida and try to attend tastings at least once or twice a year. This is a recipe they sent in an email that they have for their Reserva white wine. *NOTE* I made this using 12 drumsticks and they took about 15 minutes to brown in a jumbo frying pan. I used a Chardonnay wine and substituted one tablespoon dried, chopped dill for the fresh dill which resulted in a flavorful but not overwhelming sauce. It was delicious!

      I made this recipe last night for dinner for my aunt and myself and found it on epicurious. The only difference between the one posted here and the one I made was that the one I printed called for a half cup of white wine versus a whole cup. So that is the proportion I used (of sauvingnon blanc) and it turned out great. My chicken legs were huge (2 of them were about 2 lbs total), so I just used the two legs and the full proportion of sauce, which worked great. I made everything in my Dutch oven. The sauce was very flavorful and the chicken was very moist. While this seems like a lot of fresh dill, it did not overwhelm the sauce. I served with roasted dill potatoes and roasted summer squash from my garden. I would definitely make this again. Thanks!
