We talk about Costco a lot, and while we love their legendary bakery section as much as anyone, the real best value at Costco has got to be its rotisserie chicken.

But even better is having the chicken in the fridge at home, just waiting to be tranformed into a cozy, comforting recipe the whole family will love.
