Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9x13-inch shallow casserole dish with softened butter.
In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Then, saute onions and celery until softened, about 5-7 minutes.
Reduce to medium heat, add the garlic, and saute for 1 minute. Add the sage and saute for an additional minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, toss the cubed bread, parsley, and thyme. Gently mix until everything is combined.
Add eggs, stock, Kosher salt, pepper, and vegetable mixture to the bread mixture, gently tossing until just combined.
Fold the chopped chestnuts into the bread mixture making sure to be gentle so that the cubed bread will not break and turn mushy.
Transfer the mixture to the shallow baking pan and spread into a single layer. Bake, uncovered until it is golden brown on top, about 35-40 minutes. Serve warm.
