Homestyle Chicken Barley Soup

Very tasty. It doesn't say in the recipe but you should always season (S&P). I also added chopped scallions & fines herbes at the end of the cooking. Very nice, I will make it again.


Homestyle Chicken Barley Soup


1 Tbs vegetable oil

1 cup onion, chopped

1 cup carrots, chopped

1 cup celery, sliced

4- 1/4 cups water

2 cups chicken stock

1/2 cup pearled barley

1/2 lb cooked chicken


Heat oil in a heavy saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Sauté next 3 ingredients 4-5 minutes until onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients, except chicken. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked chicken and continue to simmer 5-10 minutes or until chicken is heated through and barley is tender.
