Sure. Buy a PIC 17C44 (if I recall correctly), program it
using the PICstart Plus, & swap the new CPU for the old one
inside the PICstart Plus. I'd buy a windowed part as the
Microchip uses OTP parts (at least they used to) in the
PICstart Plus, so you can't just erase and reuse the old
CPU inside it.
