I had a rotisserie chicken that I used to make the stock (did not use chicken broth). I otherwise, followed the recipe only adding a can of low sodium vaccuum packed corn (I love chicken corn soup). The barley is a nice change from egg noodles and also healthier. We enjoyed this a lot. Thanks for sharing!
I added two cups of precooked barley to increase fiber.
Excellent soup... boiled my chicken breasts and used the stock instead of the water. Also added some multi-colored spiral macaroni and a can of roasted tomatoes. Came out awesome!
Made as directed. This is a new favorite. So quick and easy. And so delicious. It was good last night and downright tasty today for lunch. I will be making this on a regular basis.
Delicious soup thats low in fats and easy on the diet. I had a bit of red pepper that I added to use it up. Barley is a wonderful grain that I under use and I really enjoy finding a lovely recipe that showcases it. I think that the addition of mushrooms would be good too. Made for Soup's On.

I made this tonight using chicken broth from cooking some chicken breasts. I added some frozen peas and corn when the barley went in. My family still would have preferred egg noodles, but that's no fault of the recipe...just mine for forgetting to get some at the store. :) Thanks for the nice simple chicken soup recipe!
I added in some homemade chunky salsa to the mix. I also used Syco chicken base and water for the broth. I grated the carrot and added some more diced celery. This is wonderful!. I will make another batch to freeze. When thawed, add other meats to it for a heartier soup, ie Canadian bacon, chopped giblets, shredded beef or pork for those who can eat it. Sauteing the vegies add extra flavor!. Thanks for posting! I also used my pressure cooker for this one and it makes the barley bigger and softer.( It was so nice to come home after a hard day and warm this soup for dinner. I made it last night!
wonderful soup, I made some amount adjustments, added in some cayenne pepper and used homemade stock, thanks for sharing Kizzi!
Just like grandma used to make! Very tasty, and much appreciated on this cold winter's day (even though it is JUNE!!!) :) I added some green beans I needed to use, but everything else the same. Thanks for this keeper!
