Chicken Barley Soup

Chicken Barley Soup is hearty, healthy and delicious!

It is the time of year for soup!  Chicken Barley Soup is one of our favorites.  I use the pearl barley in this recipe but you could also used flaked barley, quinoa or egg noodles.  This is a very versatile recipe and easy using frozen vegetables.  You can use any greens you like; spinach, kale, chard, turnip greens; whatever you have; fresh or frozen.  Add carrots, celery or Great Northern beans. Add canned pureed pumpkin even.  That adds nutrition and makes the broth thicker.  Your options are endless with this soup!  I am giving you a basic soup for you to use as is or add more if you want.

I will sometimes make a double batch to can some up for the pantry.  Freezing is great but it has to be thawed and if it is canned, it can be grabbed off the shelf and is ready to go.  Pressure can at 10 lbs pressure; quarts 90 minutes and pints for 75 minutes. The picture is Chicken Quinoa Soup (recipe coming soon) but it would be done the exact same way.

We think the Adobo “makes” it.  It is our favorite seasoning and we add it to almost everything.

Instructions
  1. Gather your ingredients and a big pot.
  2. Add chicken, water, parsley and Adobo to pot.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer for about an hour and a half.
  4. Remove meat from pot with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  5. Add vegetables and barley to broth and simmer gently for another hour for barley to soften.
  6. When chicken is cool enough to handle, (pull skin away from meat to speed it up a little), remove meat from bones and add to soup. Add as much or little as you want. I do not add it all. Save it for another use.
  7. Serve.
