One-Dish Rotisserie Chicken and Orzo Bake
One thing I buy every time I go to Costco is a rotisserie chicken (or two. or three. whatever). The kids love it straight off of the bone but it’s also great for recipes that call for cooked chicken. Of course, if you want to be a total overachiever (ha!) you can make a whole chicken in the slow cooker, and use that in place of the rotisserie chicken.
Anyway, on to the main attraction:
