Scarborough Fair Chicken Barley Soup

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by NavyWifenMom

Intrigued by a packet of fresh poultry herbs I found at the store, this recipe uses Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (which reminded me of the Simon and Garfunkel song, inspiring the name for this soup). Aside from the bouillon, there is no added salt needed, as the flavor is lovely without it.

This hit the spot. I used chicken stock instead of the water and cubes, used dry herbs and only made half the recipe. Delicious. Made for Belly Warmers: Soups and Stews Event '09. :)
