Serves: 6
WW Points: 7

6 pieces chicken - (breast, thigh, leg, etc.)
1 tablespoon margarine
1/4 cup white wine
2 tart apples -- pared, cored,
and sliced
6 celery stalks -- chopped
1 medium onion -- minced
3 parsley sprigs
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 1/2 teaspoons flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 tablespoon dried tarragon or basil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Brown the chicken in margarine. Add the wine and cook another 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the chicken to a warm plate.

To the pan, add the apples, celery, onion, parsley, salt and paprika. Cover the pan and cook until tender (about 5 minutes). Stir in the flour and the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add the chicken. Cover and simmer until tender, 1 hour or more.

Remove the chicken to a hot ovenproof serving dish. Remove the sauce and cook it. When warm (not hot), add the fat-free sour cream and, stirring constantly, add the tarragon or basil. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese and place under a broiler until the cheese is slightly browned. Serve immediately.
