I have a recipe that calls for vermouth. It is a chicken recipe with rice added in at the end. In my pantry I keep cooking grade wines labled sherry and white wine. Will either one of these be any where near a good substitution of should I; 1) go buy cooking vermouth or 2) is it better to always keep these alcholic beverages available? I love to drink wine and I have tried many varieties. The recipe I'm making is Paprika chicken and it only calls for a cup of vermouth. If the majority suggest vermouth, please suggest brands as I am a vermouth virgin!
