3 cloves garlic
6 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Recipe Directions for Chicken mushroom barley veggie pilaf

  1. chop onions, garlic, celery and carrots - sweat with olive oil in pan on medium high heat.

  2. cube chicken and place in pot with onions etc.

  3. stir, add salt pepper and garlic powder.

  4. chop remaining ingredients (except mushrooms) and add to pot stir allow to hang out for a minute then add beef/chicken or vege broth.

  5. bring to boil/reduce to simmer, about 45 minutes until barley is cooked and liquid absorbed - add mushrooms when there's only about 10-15 minutes left (that's my preference - i actually added them too soon this time b/c I didn't know how long it took barley to cook - and it's fine).
