Chicken Sherry (Easy and Super Delicious)

“I created this very easy recipe many years ago that everyone has loved. Many years ago, for a short while, I was the chef at the Governor's Mansion in Atlanta for Governor and First Lady Busbee. Jackie Kennedy had been a dinner guest when I served this recipe, and she wanted to give it to her chef. I refused and Jackie was furious to say the least. She went to her grave never getting this recipe, and now that I am posting it on RecipeZaar, the entire world will have it. Even a beginner cook can make this recipe. If you have any questions e-mail me:”
