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
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
If you have gone to the trouble of converting your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to mix in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Chop up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Know what is in your food
Watch out for the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only slightly decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
