Hearty Chicken Barley SoupPublished 2:19pm Monday, February 28, 2011
When the cold wind blows. And I think we have all
experienced that and will continue to do so for a little while
longer it seems. I tend to think about soups. I like to
make up soups and try different things in them. You can
substitute rice instead of the barley.
Just cook the rice separately and add at the end.
