I liked this! I didn't have the kale on hand, so I just used spinach, celery and carrots. Next time I would probably add 1/3 cup of barley next time.

Good - different. Next time I might spice up the chicken a little.

I agree with Laure. A little more barley would be good. Great simple recipe

This is a super flexible recipe. We used rutabaga instead of turnip, parsnip instead of carrot, skipped kohlrabi, and added 1/3 cup of barley instead of 1/4. It was excellent.
