    Carrot, Chicken and Barley Soup
    Recipe details:
    Recipe Short Description: The next time you’re having a roast chicken, this soup is the ideal thing for the next day. Use the chicken bones to make delicious fresh chicken stock, the last bits of chicken meat and any leftover vegetables like potatoes or peas - all can be stirred in. Pearl barley thickens the soup and makes it really hearty too. It’s a delicious, warming soup for any time of year.
    Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced
    1 leek, cleaned and sliced
    2 pints chicken stock (see box)
    3 ounces pearl barley
    6 ounces cooked chicken, broken into bite sized chunks
    6 ounces cooked potatoes, chopped
    4 ounces cooked vegetables such as peas, broccoli, or green beans
    Preparation: 1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the carrots and leeks, then saute over a medium heat for 4 mins. Add the stock, pearl barley, chicken and potatoes and season well.
    2. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20-25 mins or until the pearl barley and carrots are tender. Stir in the cooked vegetables, return to the boil and simmer for 1 min. Stir in the parsley and season to taste. Ladle into bowls and serve.
    To make chicken stock
    1. Pick all the chicken that you can off a chicken carcass and set aside. Place the chicken bones, and skin in a large pan, cover with about 4 pints water, add a bay leaf if you like, then bring to the boil.
    2. Cover and simmer for 30 mins to extract all the goodness from the bones, then remove the lid and simmer for a further 40mins or so or until the liquid has reduced by half.
    3. Strain to remove the bones then leave to stand for 5 mins. Use a spoon to skim off any excess fat which rises to the surface of the stock. It’s now ready to use but can be stored in the fridge for upto 4 days or frozen for up to 6 months.
    Serves: 4-6
    Preparation Time: 35 mins
    Serving Suggestions:

    Additional Notes:
    Cooks Tip: To save time you can always make chicken stock with a stock cube or concentrate.

      I made this soup today and thought it was very good. I shredded 2 cloves of garlic into the pot and I also doubled the recipe. I'm glad I did.

    I am so deeply saddened to share with you the news of Peabody, she passed away February 28, 2012. Robyn was a very special lady. I know, I personally thought she was the perfect southern lady. I met her a few times, as she lived right up the road from me. She had a kind and generous heart. I know we will all miss her dearly. She put up a valiant fight in her struggle with cancer.
