Pour the stuffing mix in a separate bowl.
Melt the butter and add to the stuffing.
Stir thoroughly. Pour the stuffing - butter mixture into the bowl containing the chicken et al and mix thoroughly. Pour into a casserole dish that has been sprayed with a cooking spray and spread out evenly.
Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Add the shaved cheese (and/or fried onion toppings) and bake for another 5 minutes.
If serving wine, consider a Pinot Noir. If beer is your adult beverage of choice,
offer a nice ale on the sweet side. Serve it up and enjoy!
