      Delicious soup! I took a couple of liberties with the recipe. I halved the recipe. I used a combination of button and shiitake mushrooms, and added 1/2 can of diced tomatoes I needed to use up. Also used breast and thigh meat. The rosemary really does add a lot of flavor to this. I used fresh from the garden. Very similar to a soup my grandmother used to make. This will be made again! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

      Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I love soups and I have just started trying to keep my carbs at 20 per meal so I was excited to find this recipe. I tried to keep to your recipes but had to make some adjustments for the ingredients that I had on hand. I had a whole chicken so I gently simmered it with onions, carrots, celery,black peppercorns and garlic. I also put thyme, rosemary and bay leaves in at this time. When the chicken was done and cooled it was deboned. I strained the cooking liquid and fortified the stock with Better than Bouillon for chicken ( about 3 tablespoons.) I re seasoned with more rosemary, thyme, sage, a bay leaf and marjoram. I only had dry spices and herbs so that is what I used. I added the sage and marjoram for my tastes. I cooked the barley for 30 minutes and then added the carrots and celery and then the sauteed leeks and mushrooms. I continued cooking for another 30 minutes and then added the cooked chicken. I had to simmer just a little longer to get the barley perfect, which I think was 10 minutes. We both loved this soup and it is a keeper and one that we will have often. I can not thank you enough for this delightful dish.

      This soup is DE-LISH! Add all the rosemary as recommended and use a combo of light and dark meat. I made this for a couple whose wife was recuperating from surgery last year and they still compliment me on this soup. Yum! Yum! BTW, I have added baby kale to this and it's very good, also.
