Author Notes: Orzo cooks faster than rice, a go to home-made fast food whenever needed. Adding roasted chicken makes it an incentive to a better homemade fast food. Since Mondays and Thursdays right after dinner time, it is a must game eat together with other goodies one can prepare while the orzo is boiling, like Campari Tomato SaladGina--thechewinn-nova.com
