    I used this recipe as a base -- used WAY more of each of the veggies. I didn't feel like baking the chicken before hand, so I cut it up and cooked in oil and butter combo WITH the veggies. Used a spice - Ukranian blend - from my local spice shop and should have used more... The flavors as written are quite "light' indeed. After the Barley cooked, added the parm and parsley, and barley to the veggies / chicken mix. Husband liked it and said it was one of the better lower calorie dinners we've had.... It was like a barley / chicken / veg risotto.

    A nice dish with very light flavors. Made as written, used a good quality parmesan and would recommend anyone making this do the same. Think this dish would benefit from a small dash of pepper and a splash of lemon juice. DH's input was that it was a chicken stew with out the sauce. Thanks so much for the post.
