RECIPE: HEARTY ONE POT CHICKEN AND BARLEY SOUP

by Dara Winters

There is nothing more soothing than a hearty chicken soup. This chicken soup is especially special because it is packed with 6 different kinds of vegetables and has barley which is a high fibre food. Fibre and gut health go hand in hand so for a healthy gut, why not try this soup throughout your week?

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup pearl barley 
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • ½ leek, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • ¼ broccoli, diced
  • ½ cup white cabbage, diced
  • ¼ courgette
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ onion, diced
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves 
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • Pinch of ground black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 cups chicken stock 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Method: 

  1. In a large pot on medium to high heat, add olive oil, garlic and onion. Saute for a couple of minutes
  2. Then add the celery and carrot and cook for 5 mins
  3. Then add the rest of your vegetables along with the chicken stock, barley, thyme and parsley
  4. Let it come to a boil and add the chicken breast and salt & pepper to taste
  5. Put it on low heat and let it boil for 1 hour, occasionally stirring so the bottom of the pot doesn’t burn
  6. After an hour, tear the chicken breast up so it’s shredded and incorporated into the soup. Boil for another 10mins and it’s ready to eat!
