Peruvian food is a little strange for me. The first dish I had was with raw fish.I cringed at hearing the words "raw fish". Surprisingly, it was delicious. Last nite, a Peruvian friend came over and cooked something that completely blew my tastebuds and I craved for even more. She cooked Arroz con Pollo a la Peru.

Directions

  1. Season chicken with salt and black pepper. Fry in oil until golden brown and remove from fire. Leave to cool.
  2. In the same oil, saute the chopped garlic, onion, bell peppers and cilantro. You can also use really red hot firebird peppers if you like it spicy.
  3. Add the chicken and stir for 2 - 3 minutes. Add beer and simmer for about 10 minutes until chicken is cooked.
  4. Add the rice and mixed peas. Mix well for a couple of minutes. Add chicken stock (salt if needed) and simmer for another 20 minutes or until rice is cooked and slightly burnt at the bottom.
