Heat the oil in a skillet and sear chicken until golden brown on both sides. Do not over cook or chops will dry out.
Remove chicken from skillet and sauté garlic for a minute or so (depending on the chicken you may need a little extra oil)
Combine oil, sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, and red pepper in a bowl.
Return chicken to skillet with garlic and pour sauce over them. Cover and simmer over low heat until chicken is tender and cooked through about 30-35 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken adding a little water now and again as needed.
Remove chicken from skillet and add water and cornstarch to create a thin gravy. Pour the gravy over the chicken and serve
