Chicken and Barley Bake Recipe

 I found this recipe while browsing online one day. The prep is quick and it makes your kitchen smell like Thanksgiving dinner while it's baking. (One of the best smells ever IMO, makes me excited for the holidays) Anyways, this recipe is absolutely wonderful and full of flavor!! I love barley, and am excited to have another way to use other than soup. Enjoy!

What you need:
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup pearl barley
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 chicken thighs or 6 legs 
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • salt and pepper

  1. In a medium saucepan combine onion, carrots, broth, barley, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt, pepper and garlic. Heat mixture to boiling.
  2. Pour hot mixture into a 1-1/2-quart casserole. Arrange chicken legs or thighs on top of mixture.
  3. Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 1 hour or until barley and chicken are tender. Makes 4 servings.
