Chicken Stuffing Bake

This is my standard recipe for making use of left-over cooked chicken. I've changed the stuffing mix occasionally and have used cornbread stuffing mix and a few others from time to time. But I like the taste best when I use herbed stuffing mix.

I've also used cream of mushroom soup (in place of the cream of celery) and added a few sliced fresh mushrooms, and it's usually quite good too. But even though I love mushrooms, my family isn't all that fond of them, so I rarely make that version. But if you like mushrooms, you might like that version best.
