Chicken Barley Chili (adapted from the Quaker Quick Barley box)

Submitted by: CLAIREMZM

Introduction

Okay, actually, this isn't exactly the one from the box. I changed the original recipe which called for salsa or tomato sauce to Rotel (because that's the best thing there is!), and I changed black beans to pinto beans because I knew I didn't have any black beans on hand at the moment.
