Poulet Jardin...a.k.a. Chicken Garden Skillet

The first time I ate this was at my future mother-in-law's. Helen is a great cook. I recently had the pleasure of visiting her at her home in North Carolina and rediscovered this recipe. It was called Chicken Garden Skillet then, but now has a fancier name...Poulet Jardin.  Either way, it's delicious!
Cut up a chicken. I skinned it too.
Sprinkle generously with seasoned salt and shake in flour.
I used my electric skillet. Brown the chicken.
Turn until golden on both sides.
Add the broth and sherry, cover and cook 45 minutes.
Add the vegetables.  Season with salt and pepper.
Cover and let cook another 15-20 minutes.
Serve with rice. You will have lots of yummy sauce. I also like a salad and crescent rolls with this, because that's what I had the first time I ate it at Helen's. Foodies have great memories!

Sprinkle the chicken with seasoned salt (I skin the chicken) and dredge in flour (about 1/2 C)
