Soften gelatin with sugar in 1 cup of the broth in a medium size saucepan; heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatin dissolves; remove from heat.

Stir lemon juice into remaining gelatin in saucepan.
Chill about 50 minutes, or until as thick as unbeaten egg white.

Fold chicken and celery into thickened gelatin in saucepan; spoon over sticky firm chutney layer in mold.
Chill overnight, or several hours until firm.
