  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package, using minimum cooking time.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1/4 cup butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, thyme, salt and pepper. Cook 11 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender. Reduce heat to medium; cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are starting to brown.
  • 3
    Sprinkle flour over onions in skillet; cook and stir about 1 minute. Stir in broth; heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; stir in chicken and cooked pasta, mixing to combine.
  • 4
    Add half of the mixture to baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Top with remaining pasta mixture, then remaining cheese. Cover and bake 20 minutes.
  • 5
    In small bowl, mix Topping ingredients. Remove cover; sprinkle on top of pasta mixture; bake 5 to 10 minutes or until topping is golden brown and mixture is heated through.

  • Try substituting shredded mozzarella cheese for the Swiss cheese, if desired.
  • Leftover cooked chicken also works in place of rotisserie chicken.
