  • I notice that other reviewers did not make recipe exactly as directed.I just made this recipe and 3 cups of dry barley is too much.I had to add a total of 5 qts of chicken broth and I just simmered the soup.The recipe still has a very good taste but makes a lot more soup. Half the barley amount. - 8/19/13

  • I used left over rotisserie chicken, and homemade stock (made with the bones of the chicken), added ~ 1/2 cup frozen peas & 2 T sun dried tomatoes (mostly for color). Great taste and quite filling. This along a whole grain slice of homemade bread was just perfect for an easy Sunday supper. - 8/21/11

  • Mushrooms weren't listed in ingred. so I didn't have them. Added water chestnuts, plus canned tomatoes. Used veggie broth, no chicken ( to make vegetarian ) Use bigger pan than you might think, as barley expands.
    I can add tofu or soy crumbles if I want to to indivd. servings. dh, chicken, et - 1/30/10
