    Dancer^'s Note:

    Barley’s nutty flavor goes well with onions, mushrooms, or peas. Butternut squash also is a good complement. This large, pear-shaped winter squash has sweet, orange flesh. With onion, green pepper and sage, you’ll be glad you had turkey leftovers.

      Great low-fat, healthy meal. I par-cooked the butternut squash and the barley in the microwave and cooked the chicken, onions, and bell peppers in an oven-proof skillet. I combined all the ingredients and put the entire skillet into the oven. Thanks for posting!

      This recipie was excellent. I substituted chicken for the turkey and left out the feta. Doing this 1/4 of the recipie is only 5 Weight Watchers points. The recipie was tasty, filling, and just sweet enough to curb any temptation for dessert.
