WOW, this is fantastic! As a diabetic I love barley for two reasons, it's taste and texture & it has the lowest G.I. (glycemic index) of any grain. I've made breakfast cereal with it and bread but somehow it never occurred to me to treat it as a side dish. Let me tell you that barley will now be replacing rice and potatoes fairly often on my table. this recipe is very simple and delivers really outstanding flavor that should please everyone in the family. You may not want to tell them that it's very healthy. Lastly, I want to say that I didn't use the ask for oil, it's a small amount that I really saw no need for and as I was quick frying the meat strips (something that I very rarely do) I was happy not to add any to the barley.

Great side dish! I made as directed using chicken stock and regular barley which I cooked for about 40 minutes. The lemon, parsley and parmesan were perfectly balanced; subtle flavors with none overpowering the others. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

This was wonderful!! I cut the recipe in half and used home made chicken stock and regular barley but the flavors were right on! I served with oven fried chicken and a green salad. Thank you for sharing. Will be making this again. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game.

I have to agree with the others.... Delicious!! I used the longer cooking barley and used dried parsley and the chicken broth. I also added lemon pepper instead of regular pepper to add some zip! Made for Rookie Tag Game 2013.

I have always enjoyed barley in vegetable soup and loved it in this recipe! Did use the chicken broth and dried parsley instead of fresh. Fresh flavor, lemony boost, and cheese to boot! Will be making this often! Thank you duonyte for posting this recipe because it will definitely be a favorite for me. Made and reviewed for the game forums 123 Hits recipe tag game.

This is very good. Mine took a little longer to cook, but otherwise I made it as posted. I really enjoyed this tonight with fish and sauteed zucchini and yellow squash. Thanks for sharing!
