Ingredients

  • 1

    pound pasta (I used penne-you could use any fun shaped pasta)

  • 1

    cup chicken breasts, cooked and cubed

  • 1

    cup ham, cooked and cubed

  • 1 1/2

    cups milk

  • 8

    ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 2

    tablespoons dried minced onion

  • 2

    cups Swiss cheese, shredded

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Cayenne Pepper

  • 1

    cup panko crumbs

  • 1/2

    cup butter, melted

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over med-high heat. Salt it and add the pasta; cook until al dente (about 11 minutes-I used whole wheat pasta which takes a bit longer than regular pasta). Drain and return to the pot. Add in the chicken and ham and toss to combine. Preheat the broiler. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, cream cheese and minced onion over low-medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until it becomes a smooth texture (about 5 minutes). Stir into the pasta mixture. Stir in the Swiss cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer pasta to a baking dish and top with Panko crumbs. Pour melted butter over crumbs and broil until browned (I gave it 4 minutes).
