WHAT TO DO:
Preheat oven to 350oF. Lightly grease 2-quart baking dish with butter or cooking spray, set aside.

Add toasted croissant pieces, chicken stock, Dijon mustard and half cheese. Stir until evenly combined; should be somewhat moist. Transfer to prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through and golden brown on top.
