Greek Chicken Pasta

Whenever a chicken recipe calls for rotisserie chicken I'm excited to make it! Having the chicken already cooked and juicy makes everything go so much easier! This is a very simple dish that is super yummy!

A very simple recipe that is awesome! Scott finished all the leftovers the next day it was so good!

I've made this again and it was good! I ran out of feta cheese and substituted cheddar. It wasn't quite as good this time around, but still good. I also added mushrooms to the mix and it was awesome. I also poached the chicken myself. It wasn't quite as tender as the rotisserie chicken, but when you don't want to run to the store it's still good!

I just keep updating pictures on this post. I don't change the recipe-ever-its the same every time. It's seriously that good.
