This Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya recipe has a nice spice level which will need to be offset by a chilled white wine. I tend to gravitate towards a nice Chardonnay. The fruit levels combines with a little oak pairs well with the chicken, sausage and rice! Follow the link to our wine review site to find our favorite Chardonnay wines-LetsHaveWine.com
