    I based my rating on the small changes that I made to this recipe on the advice of the other cooks. I too used 2 cups of water(barley cooked just right,not to dry not to wet) as well as added brocolli, red peppers and mushrooms - 1/31/08

    This could very easily be made on the stovetop and I think I may do that. Maybe instant barley has a 1-1 water ratio but regular is more like 2-1. I will definitely add green veggies and probably cayenne. Maybe curry. - 11/7/07

    I used leftover rotisserie chicken in place of the chicken thighs and frozen mixed veggies. Great casserole without the need for a cream of...soup base. - 3/9/12

    The extra water was definitely needed, as suggested by others. My family thought the recipe was a little boring, and all thought something like broccoli or mushrooms would be better than carrots in this recipe. - 1/13/12

    My picky kids at this! I added broccoli to the current vegtables and also used Penzey Northwoods seasoning as the poultry seasoning. Would increase water to 1.5 cups. (Two cups -- per other comments-- was too much.) - 12/28/11
