  1. It’s not my favorite chicken dish.

    1 broiler chicken
    1 medium onion, chopped fine
    1/3 c. olive oil
    1 c. manestra(orzo)
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1-1/2 c. canned tomatoes
    3 c. boilng water
    salt and pepper to taste
    Clean chicken and cut into serving pieces. Heat olive oil in pan and brown chicken on both sides. Add onion, cinnamon, tomato and season to taste. Add one cup of water, cover and cook over low flame until chicken is almost done. Remove cover, add pasta and 3 c. of boiling water, adjust seasoning and cook over low flame until pasta is tender. Add more water if needed. Stir occasionally, being very careful not to break up chicken pieces. Stand before serving.

  2. It is pretty good, but I like anything with pasta:)

    Beer, Orzo and Chicken

    1/2 cup orzo pasta
    1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer
    2 teaspoons canola oil
    1 pound boneless chicken thighs
    1/2 onion, minced 3 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    1 cup tomato sauce
    1/2 cup pimentos, drained
    1 tablespoon ground turmeric

    1/2 cup frozen petite peas salt and pepper to taste

    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.
