Chicken & Barley Stew

A delicious stew made in a slow cooker that can be frozen in small portions for times when you don't want to cook.



  1. Cut bacon, onion, celery, kale and mushrooms into small pieces. Chop garlic into small pieces. Cut chicken breasts in halves
  2. Sauté bacon, onion, celery, mushrooms and garlic until cooked - onion should be translucent, bacon cooked but not hard.
  3. Place chicken breasts, barley and spices on bottom of slow cooker. Add rest of ingredients.
  4. Let cook in slow cooker until chicken is tender, and barley is soft (on low heat about 7 hours or on high heat about 4 hours).
  5. Serve in bowls.
  6. Note: great with crusty bread.

This was very bland. And the bacon still looked raw so nobody wanted to eat it. I won't make this again.

Since no one here likes Kale, we substituted frozen mixed veggies. Added a little bit of hot pepper flakes and bazing! This was a huge huge hit!
