    Mille®'s Note:

    In 7th century England, herbs were one of the few flavourings available to cooks and were used heavily, as in this medieval recipe. The original recipe also allowed the cook to use rabbit or hare joints in place of the veal or chicken.

      Fantastic! I love the addition of vinegar. I did use vegetable stock instead of water, and substituted an onion as I'm not a fan of leeks. The result was a stew that was satisfying for the soul and good for your heart (barley). Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us.

      I love this recipe! I made it as is, using boneless chicken thighs. I wasn't sure how hearty it would be with only the leeks and barley, but it did not disappoint. A definite do-over! Very yummy and very hearty! Excellent with a good crusty bread!

      Another wonderful Miller recipe! I used about ten medium-smallish chicken legs and a full cup of barley. Had it for dinner on a cold winter night - it was perfect! I'm expecting tonight's leftovers to be even better!
