Yummy. This was even good leftover the next day. Easy to prepare and a nice change.

My MIL has a chicken jubilee recipe that is similar but has some 1 tsp. Worcestershire, 1 sliced onion, 1 tsp. garlic powder and 1/2 cup white raisins-just some extras if you like.

This was very good. My kids were a bit leery at first to try it then dug right in. For the kids sake I didn't use any of the alcohol, and as time was short so I cooked this on top of the stove. I am looking forward to having company over real soon and making the "adult" version in the crockpot.
