Wine and poultry are a classic culinary duo, but actually getting wine flavor into the chicken took some work. Dry white wine proved to be the best contender, and we found that two cups was sufficient to marinate a 4-pound bird (butterflied, for easier grilling). Along with garlic, herbs, and a little sugar, we whiz the marinade in the blender for the best texture. Poking the chicken with a skewer helps the flavors of the marinade penetrate, and reserving a quarter cup to brush on the chicken near the end of cooking reinforces the bright, winey flavor.
