Ingredients

  • 1/2
    cup butter
  • 4
    cups halved and thickly sliced sweet onions (about 2 large onions)
  • 1 1/2
    cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 2
    cups Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1
    tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2
    cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken
  • 1
    cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz)
  • 1
    can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dough sheet
  • 1
    tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2
    teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium-high heat until sizzling. Cook onions in butter 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are very soft and golden brown.
  • 3
    Stir in rice; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until toasted. Stir in broth and Worcestershire sauce. Heat to simmering, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until heated. Stir in cheese, mixing to combine. Transfer hot mixture to baking dish; cover and keep warm.
  • 4
    Unroll dough on work surface; cut lengthwise into 8 strips. Arrange 4 strips lengthwise on top of filling. Cut remaining 4 in half, and lay crosswise on top of other strips to form a lattice design over chicken mixture. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle thyme on top.
  • 5
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is deep golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

  • Leftover cooked chicken also works in place of rotisserie chicken.
  • Great to serve with a fresh green salad.
