Directions:
Chop celery and onion coarsely and spread evenly in the bottom of a large skillet or Dutch oven. Arrange chicken breasts on top of the celery and onion. Add broth, wine and garlic clove. Cover and simmer until chicken is tender about 20 minutes.

Remove chicken from the broth. Cool; cut meat into large pieces.

While meat is cooking make a roux with the flour and butter. Strain the broth and bring to a boil. Add the roux and blend until thickened. Season to taste. Pour a small amount of this sauce in bottom of a shallow oven-proof dish. Arrange chicken over the sauce add the shrimp and mushrooms to the remaining sauce and pour over chicken. Place the covered dish in a 325º oven for 30 minutes. Serve over wild rice.
