While Champagne (i.e. Sparkling Wine) may seem oddly celebratory to pair with fried chicken, in fact the flavor profiles of both complement each other perfectly. Champagne has a toasty biscuit flavor that mixes well with the fried coating on the chicken. Likewise, the fizzy bubbles and acidity inherent with Champagne cuts through the fattiness of the chicken, giving it a delicious balance.
