  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsalted margarine
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose white flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canned mushrooms, rinsed and drained
  • 14 ounces low-sodium chicken broth
  • 6 slices white bread, cubed
  • 3 teaspoons sherry wine

  2. Place chicken breasts in a pan and cover with water. Simmer for 10 minutes until done. Reserve 1/2 cup of the broth.
