Think this would be ok without the celery?

Terri-
I think it'd be fine without the celery. It's really just there for a texture aspect. You could substitute some celery seed or celery salt. Or just bypass it altogether if you don't like the taste of celery.

Chicken-a-la-king is one of my favorite casseroles. :^d
