Chicken With Sherry Ala Orange Sauce

“This recipe is very easy to put together and makes a lovely presentation. You can get it ready early on and pop it in the oven 40 minutes before dinner. Great for Sunday dinner or for a special guest dinner. I like adding the Grand Marnier but it is optional. It just gives an added flavor boost. If you do not like spicy use regular smoked Paprika and sub green peppers for the Jalapeno.”
