I have a list of substitutes and it says orange or pineapple juice maxxie but I'm sure you could also just use liquid chicken stock.

If you use Verjuice that would be a nice substitute. Otherwise as Judy suggested  use stock.

Verjuice is a good substitute for dry sherry.  But if you need the sweeter sherry then you need a more caramelly flavour - sweeten the verjuice with palm sugar or light brown sugar.  You could also try diluting kecap manis.  Good luck.

I usually use it when I need only a little white wine and it isn't worth opening a bottle for. (Verjuice)

I always had that problem Cookie as I don't drink dry white wine.  I solved it by buying a small cask of Chardonnay for my cooking, it sits on the top shelf of the fridge and can be poured into a measuring cup quite easily.  No more wasted bottles of wine  ;)
