lemon and herb chicken with barley

This week’s delicious lemon and herb chicken with barley recipe is one of my family’s favourite meals. The flavours in the meal are suitable for adult as well as children’s tastes. It’s a very quick and delicious chicken meal to put together and is always a crowd pleaser. Invariably when I serve this someone asks for the recipe.

The lemon and herb barley chicken recipes uses barley instead of the more traditional rice. The barley is very high in fibre and vitamins but does not compromise on flavour.

So I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is ideal to take the chicken skin off before you eat it. Let me know how your cooking goes. See you next week, Leanne x

Here is a picture of what the dish looks like before you put it into the oven. Be careful to place the chicken in slowly so that the liquid underneath doesn’t splash out

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you need to publish more
    about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject
    but usually folks don’t talk about these topics. To the next!
    Kind regards!!
