Recipe by Carrie in Indiana
A wonderful mix of stuffing and chicken with a host of yummy ingredients. I got this recipe from one of my best friend's Jen. I loved it the first time I had it and just had to have the recipe! Thankfully for all of us, she indulged!

Wonderful. Was really leary about making this for DH. He hates swiss cheese and is not fond of stuffing. He said I could make it anytime. This was sooooo good. I used Stovetop Cornbread stuffing, and also grated a piece of bulk swiss. The celery added a nice crunch. The batch was huge though. I froze half in an 8 x 8 before baking. French fried onions on the top really made the casserole. People with small children, may want to saute the other onions a bit, before adding to the recipe.
