Fried chicken and champagne makes the most fun and easiest two-ingredient party combination.
The Champagne's bubbles and acidity are a perfect pairing for fried chicken's crunchy, mouth-coating richness. It's the best of both worlds.

Fried chicken is popular with many South Africans  - as is Champagne (well sparkling wine or MCC) - and they make a perfect duo for a summer picnic.
All you have to do is to pack a picnic blanket, a  bucket of fried chicken, add a bottle of chilled sparkling wine and viola - you have the perfect picnic.

The great thing is that you don't even have to make your own chicken - your friends will be happy with a family bucket of wings from your local fast food outlet and you have an instant party. 

It makes for a perfect sundowner picnic on the beach, in your back garden or even on the balcony.
The richness of the chicken wings is complemented by the dry, crisp flavours of the champagne.
