    This is a wonderful Barley soup made in the Slow cooker, but using the microwave to have in ready in 3 hours. Feel free to add any other vegetables that are available. As you can see no need for oil or butter.

      What a fine soup! Prep. is quick and the rest takes care of itself. I did do this on top of the stove and it worked well. We love barley here and nice to have another soup to use it in. I had a couple of leftover potatoes (boiled) so I chopped them up and threw them in with the chicken. So nice to have a great WW soup which will be made many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for ZWT6 for the X-tra Hot Dishes.

      Absolutely wonderful! As this was going to be dinner after I got home from work I altered the directions a bit -- by basically skipping the precooking/microwaving and just tossed everything in the crockpot including the uncooked cut up chicken and put it on low for 6 hours and then my crockpot goes to warm (probably about 9 hours total). Perfectly thick and wonderful hearty soup/stew with very little calories -- yummy! This is only about 3 or 4 WW points -- so a definite keeper which we will be having again and again (especially since I almost always have all the ingredients on hand!) Made for ZWT 6. Thanks for sharing!

      Great soup and sooo easy to put together. I used about 1 lb uncooked chicken breasts, left whole and placed in the bottom of the crock pot, added everything on top (also leaving mushrooms whole) and doubled the garlic. I also added 1/2 t. dried thyme.
      Cooked on low at least 8 hours and "pulled" the chicken apart. What a wonderful, comforting soup. Thanks for sharing!
