"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 pkg. seasoned bread stuffing (preferably Pepperidge Farms) plus 1 cup water
1 stick melted butter or margarine
2 1/2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped green onion tops or chives
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Salt to taste

Mix together lightly seasoned bread stuffing, Water and butter, and put 1/2 of mixture in a buttered 12" x 18" casserole dish.

Thoroughly mix in another bowl:
diced chicken, chopped onions, green onion tops or chives, chopped celery, mayonnaise and salt to taste

Put mixture in casserole over bread mixture. Top with remaining bread mixture. Beat 2 eggs slightly and add 1 1/2 cup milk and pour over bread mixture. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Take out 1 hour before baking. Spread 1 can of cream of mushroom soup over top.

Bake uncovered in 325 oven for 40 minutes. Sprinkle grated cheese on top and return to oven for 10 minutes. Serves 8 to 10. I use this many times instead of regular sage dressing.
