Barley Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

Got this one off a box of barley. The original recipe was just "Hot Barley Casserole" so I added a bit to it. Nothing fancy here - just yummy chicken and good chewy barley. The original recipe didn't have much in the way of seasonings - I usually add some thyme or sage or other herbs.

Thumbs up all around the table! I added garlic, poultry seasoning, mushrooms and green beans. I could only find quick barley in my store, which knocked the bake time down to about half an hour, but I'm sure I'd enjoy the texture better with regular barley.
