6 to 8 cups torn bread crumbs

2 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions: Debone chicken and cut into cubes. Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Layer bread crumbs and chicken. To make custard, melt butter, add flour and blend.

Shredded cheese can be sprinkled over casserole about 6 minutes before it is done.
