Barley is a much under-rated and seldom-used grain, which is a great shame since it has a pleasing flavour and texture as well as being a good source of fibre. Here it is cooked with a medley of vegetables in a lemon and thyme stock. The addition of cooked chicken turns the dish into a great main course.
Great recipe. I ended up needing to cook the barley for an extra 5 mins, so added some extra stock. Topped the meal with some fresh, sweet cherry tomatoes for contrast. - 19 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
