CHICKEN MACARONI BAKE (Once a Month Mom)

This is yummy comfort food, a crowd (and kid) pleaser, and a great one dish meal.  It also freezes very well.  Just make and assemble casserole and freeze.  To eat, just thaw and bake 30 min or bake from frozen for 1 hour.
1 small onion, chopped
2 T butter
1/4 c. milk
10.5 oz cream of chicken soup
1 1/2  c. chicken (or Turkey), cooked & cubed
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz pasta, any variety, cooked (I use Barilla whole grain rotini)
1/8 c. bread crumbs or crackers

Preheat oven to 350*  Prepare pasta according to package directions. Brown onion in butter. Stir in soup, chicken, milk, and 3/4 c. cheese; heat until cheese melts. Add cooked noodles to sauce and stir.  Pour into greased baking dish. Mix the remaining cheese and bread crumbs and place on top. Bake 30 minutes or until hot.
