    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.

    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.

    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.
