    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
