Quaker Mexican Chicken and Barley Chili

Submitted by: HEBONNEY

Introduction

This is a mild-tasting (almost sweet due to the corn) but very filling version of the white chili sold in restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday, except there are no beans. I have wanted to try adding some navy beans, but haven't gotten around to it. Delicious.

Ingredients

    1 C chopped onion
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1Tbsp olive oil
    3 C water
    1/2 C medium Quaker Barley
    1 (16 oz) can tomatoes
    1 (16 oz) can tomato sauce
    1 (14.5 oz) can chicken broth
    1 (11 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 (4 oz) can chopped green chiles, drained
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    3 C chopped, cooked chicken (I only use breast meat)

Directions

In a 4-qt. saucepan or Dutch oven, cook onion and garlic in oil until onion is tender. Use the tomato juice and chop the tomatoes before adding. Add remaining ingredients, except chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover. Simmer 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked chicken; continue simmering 5-10 minutes or until chicken is heated through and barley is tender. Add additional water or chicken broth if chili becomes too thick upon standing.

Makes nine 1-cup servings.

  • This was really great! I try to find recipes that substitute vegetables or chicken for higher fat beef & this did that. Plus the texture of the barley with corn made it so that my husband did not even realize he was eating a new grain. - 10/7/10
