Rotisserie Chicken Barley & Vegetable Soup Recipe

I am an avid believer that Chicken Soup has healing powers.  With my whole family being sick and my hatred of the canned stuff, I turned to Pinterest(which I'm addicted to).  When I found this Chicken Barley Soup recipe - I had to try it.  I've recently fallen in love with Barley.  This recipe was amazing and it will be my new "go to" comfort food when I need to take goodies(along with brownies, of course) to friends or family.

Ingredients
1/2 onion, diced small
6 Large carrots, peeled and cut into coins(I cut up several baby carrots because I prefer smaller pieces)
7 Celery stalks, trimmed and sliced into pieces
1 whole Rotisserie Chicken, shred
10 C. Chicken Broth
1 C. Barley
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive oil
2 Cloves Garlic(Minced - I believe they heal as well!)
Bay Leaf

Instructions
In a large pot, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and heat on medium for a few minutes. Add the garlic and stir a few times. Add the onions, celery and carrots to the pot. Sauté for about 15 minutes until somewhat soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken broth, shredded chicken and barley to the pot. Add Bay leaf. Turn on medium to high heat until slightly bubbling. Turn down the heat to simmer and let cook for one hour. The barley will cook all the way through along with the flavors developing. Taste along the way to see if you need to add more salt or pepper. Enjoy and let the magical powers of Chicken Soup work on you!

This recipe made enough for my family to eat twice.

Great recipe. Barley is a great, inexpensive food. A tip: be sure to get hulled barley because it is more nutritious.

I have a chicken barley soup that I came up with on the fly...I used to use brown rice in it but since my husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I have become an even bigger fan of barley and quinoa...and other grains. I've even gotten to the point where we substitute barley for the rice in a stir fry, etc.. I will def have to use your recipe as well!

Now this is what I need on a cold wintery day, and it looks so healthy. If I made a big pot I could put some in hubby's thermos for lunch. Gotta keep the hard workin man warm too not to mention healthy!
