Barley With Chicken And Onions Recipe
3 tablespoon Olive oil
2 Garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
2 medium Yellow onions, peeled and sliced
8 Chicken thighs
Salt, to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup Barley, rinsed and drained
6 cup Chicken stock, fresh or canned
2 tablespoon Chopped fresh parsley
Heat a big frying pan and add 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add garlic
and onion and saute until tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the frying pan
again and add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Brown the chicken on both
sides and set aside.
Place the rinsed barley and 3 cups of chicken stock in a 6- to 8-quart
pot. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 30 mins. or until liquid is
absorbed. Add remaining 3 cups of chicken stock, the browned chicken,
onion and parsley. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, over low heat
until liquid is absorbed and chicken is tender.
Salt and pepper to taste. This recipe serves 4 to 5.
Comments: Barley is a most interesting and frugal grain. You can put
it in soups, stews, casseroles, even salads. Rice doubles when it cooks,
but barley grows to three to four times its original size.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't ignore the fiber
Reducing the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber as well. Look at reduced carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have converted your best loved chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, you donít want to add in those high carbohydrate 'real' chocolate. Break up a low carbohydrate bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that in its place.
