Super Easy Chicken and Barley Soup - #52soups
  • Tetra pack of Chicken Broth (about 4 cups)
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup pot barley
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dry thyme
  • 1-2 chicken breasts cooked (leftover rotisserie chicken is nice, or you can poach it in the broth)
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large pot bring the broth, water, garlic and barley to a boil.
  2. Turn the heat down to a simmer and cook until barley is cooked through (about 40 minutes depending on the kind of barley you use).
  3. Add cooked chicken, frozen mixed vegetables and bring back to a boil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add hot sauce (I like Chili Lime Cholula) if desired.
