Barley Stir-Fry

Recipe by Dancer

I make this last night, we had it with a grilled chicken breast and bread sticks. Very tasty and filling. Points 2.

I love this recipe. Very easy to make even though the barley takes long to cook. I need more water for the barley than the recipe stated. Had the leftovers for lunch with a poached egg and it tasted even better than it did when fresh. Thanks for posting
