Quaker chicken barley chili

Submitted by: STRINGI719

Introduction

This is from the back of the Quaker Medium Barley box. I haven't made it yet, but it sounds good, so that's what is for dinner tonight! When I entered the ingredients I'd be using, the nutrition data came up slightly different that what the box suggests the recipe will be. I'll be using reduced sodium versions of the tomatoes, broth, and corn. This is from the back of the Quaker Medium Barley box.

Ingredients

    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
    16 oz tomato sauce (could sub. salsa)
    1 can (14.5 oz) fat free chicken broth
    1 cup (dry) Quaker medium barley
    4 cups water
    1 TB chili powder
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained/rinsed
    1 can (15.25 oz) corn, undrained
    3 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed (about 1.5 lbs)

    * optional sour cream for garnish
    * optional grated cheese for garnish

Directions

In large heavy pot, combine first 7 ingredients. Bring to a boil on high heat, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add beans, corn and chicken. Increase to high heat until chili comes to a boil. Cover and reduce to low heat, allowing to simmer for another 5 minutes, or until barley is tender. If chili becomes too thick, add more chicken broth or water to achieve desired consistency. Serve topped with optional garnishes of sour cream and grated cheese, if desired. Makes 11 one-cup servings.

  • I really liked this chili, but I tripled the amount of chili powder. It is very filling. My husband didn't like it at all. Guess you have to like barley. It needs more liquid than called for in the recipe, unless you want to eat hotdish. - 10/14/13
