  1. Place the orzo in a small bowl. Pour enough beer into the bowl to cover the orzo; set the remaining beer aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Drain the fat from the skillet and lower heat to medium. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onions are translucent.
  3. Pour in the orzo mixture, the rest of the beer, chicken broth, tomato sauce, pimentos, and turmeric; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the peas; simmer another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

I used beef instead of chicken and broccoli instead of peas and roasted bell peppers instead of pimentos and it came out good. Very versitile recipe to use what you have on hand! Thanks!

My rating scale (cause number of stars is subjective): 1-Didn't like it, 2-It's okay, 3-Liked it, 4-Loved it, 5-Can't get enough of it. I wasn't sure what to expect with this receipe. I followed exactly except for the pimentos (used red pepper instead). The first few bites were a bit of a surprise but I ended up wanting more when I finished. Needs to be cooked longer than directed - until the liquid reduces - and is delicious the next day.

I would not recommend this recipe as is. The ratio of orzo to liquid is not right. I had to drain half of the liquid, because it was very soupy. I would recommend reducing the amount of beer and/or broth, and doubling the amount of orzo. Also, it does not specify what type of beer to use. We used a hoppy amber ale and the result was not as palatable as it could have been. Once I adjusted the recipe the overall result was pretty tasty.
