  2. Add chicken and cook and stir until browned – about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and onions and cook for 3 minutes.

Recipe Tips

  • Vegetable Barley Risotto is an easy side dish version of this recipe. Omit the chicken and add extra vegetables in season. In the summertime,add some fresh corn or peas during the last 10 minutes of simmering. In the winter,stir in a new flavour by adding diced squash,carrots or parsnip when you add the broth.
  • Pot barley retains its fibrous bran layer (unlike pearl barley which has had the bran polished off),adding to its nutrient content and its slight nutty flavour. Canada is a major barley producer for the world.
