      I don`t understand the soaking of the pearl barley overnight for it cooks up just as quick as the lentil to a nice chewy texture. I used red lentils for the recipe didn`t state which to use. The recipe would be easier to follow if the ingredients where in order as used. This is a quick to make recipe and can be quicker if the chicken was cooked right in the pot for more direct chicken flavor. This is a tangy tomatoey lemony recipe. Nice and hearty. Yes I did enjoy it. Would have loved some garlic and some heat like pepper flakes added to it. I packed in in individual freezer bags for quick defrost and a healthy low fat lunch. As for the barley----- If this recipe called for Whole barley which includes the bran. I can understand the grain needs to be soaked overnight and then simmered for at least an hour. Barley is a good source of protein one of my favorite grains. Thanks!
