.75 cup Barley
2 cups Potatoes (diced)
1 14 oz can Diced Tomatoes
3 cups Carrots (diced)
1 cup Celery (diced)
1 cup Onion (diced)
3 cloves Garlic (minced)
.75 cup Frozen Corn

4 cups Kale (ribs removed and chopped)
1 lb Chicken Breast (cooked and diced)
1 tsp Black Pepper
.5 tsp Dried Thyme
.5 tsp Dried Rosemary
1 or 2 Dried Bay Leaves
You can cook the barley in the stock, but add a couple more cups of stock to make up for what the barley absorbs.
2. Bring your stock, bay leaf, black pepper, thyme, rosemary to a boil. Add your potatoes and turn to simmer.
3. In a fry pan, sprayed with non-stick spray saute your onions for a couple of minutes to soften, than add celery, carrots and garlic. Saute for another minute or two. Add to stock. Add diced tomatoes.
4. When potatoes are tender add chicken and frozen vegetables and bring back to boil.
5. Once boiling add chicken, kale and cooked barley, heat through and serve.
