      Excellent dinner combination. The recipe doesn't state if it is instant barley or not, but i assumed with the small amount of liquid and quick cook time, it was. I used regular barley and doubled the amount of broth and simmered for 1 hour until it was done. Nice change from rice. The chicken had so much flavor and so simple to do. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.

      Very good! I didn't hear a single complaint at the dinner table (and this is very rare with 4 kids, two being teens!) I did make a few substitutions, only because I did not have the ingredients. Instead of fresh herbs, I put dried rosemary, oregano, thyme, marjoram and sage in a bowl with a little olive oil with the sliced garlic before rubbing under and over the skin. Also, instead of barley I used brown rice, it turned out very good. Thanks for the great recipe! I will definitely be making this again!
