1/3 cup butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped

1/3 cup sour cream or milk
- Melt butter a medium saucepan and sauté onion and celery until softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in stuffing mix (and seasoning packet, if included), coating well. Add the water or broth and stir to combine. Set aside to allow liquid to be absorbed.
- Prepare chicken and spread evenly in the bottom of a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

*I prefer and use Redi-Base soup bases available at www.redibase.com.
Tip: Additional salt is unnecessary and not advised, as the stuffing mix, condensed soup and the chicken broth provides enough for the recipe.
