Made this just as directed except I used pearl barley since that is what we had. Cooked the barley separately and added it. An extra step, but worth it.
I love the flavors and textures in this soup. I shredded the chicken, which I prefer over diced. Also, sadly, I forgot to add the almonds. Didn't even remember to toast them. It was still delicious. My 16 month and (almost) 3 year old loved this as well as my husband and me. A nice change from the regular chicken noodle, however yummy that is.
Just a note on portions - this is quite filling. I halved it and we have enough to eat it for dinner again tomorrow night (but likely we'll have it for lunch tomorrow). So, easily a healthy 6 servings halved. I can't imagine the amount you'd make if it was the full 12 servings.
Thanks for recipe! It's been sitting in my recipe box for a while now and finally got around to trying it.
