Country Captain

Curried chicken gets dressed up with plenty of rich vegetables, spices, and a crunchy peanut garnish.André Baranowski

This curried chicken casserole (from Atlanta's Watershed) is a Southern Lowcountry classic whose name harks back to the days when ships' captains in port cities like Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia, traded in spices acquired during their travels abroad.

Pairing note The fruity, mildly tannic notes of the 2006 Magito Cabernet Sauvignon Highlands Blend from Sonoma County nicely complement the curry in this dish.
