    JustJanS's Note:

    I've just discovered barley (apart from boiled in soups) so am on the lookout for new recipes using it. This one comes from the Taste site and looks good! I've "estimated" 60 minutes prep including cooking the barley and chicken (at the same time!) and then called it a no cook recipe.
