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.
Really not good. Really really. In an attempt to save the pan of food I strained it and rinsed it completely. Added some black beans and served it on corn taco shells.

I was so excited when I saw "beer orzo and chicken" because they are 3 of my husband's favorite things and thought it would be a perfect dinner. It turned out terribly...the sauce was especially strange and did not taste good. I don't know if it would be better with a different beer but I don't even want to try because I was not impressed at all by this meal and I've been cooking for a long time.
Really bitter weird sloppy consistency not sure what could save this. I went with it in the first place because it was the "chicken recipe of the day" but I guess that doesn't mean All Recipes vets it first.
Sure it's easy and it's a one-pot recipe but it was really bitter. I made it with a pumpkin ale after reading some of the reviews saying it was bitter and my husband and I couldn't even finish what was on our plates.
Both my husband and I found this dish completely unpalatable (I type this review as I am about to leave to go get fast food). The only thing I did different was used fresh bell peppers instead of pimentos. I really don't think the use of pimentos would have changed the outcome of this dish. Please save your ingredients!!!!
Found this to be simple and fairly tasty - though the turmeric is a bit out of balance. This would be why some found it bitter and unpalatable of course turmeric is one of those tastes you like or hate. I was worried it would be soupy but a little extra time in the pan fixed that. Can't wait to try the beef and broccoli variation noted earlier.
