Spring Chicken Barley Soup
Spring is almost sitting beside us, which means – MORE PRODUCE! Look no further in welcoming the occasion than this recipe for spring chicken barley soup.
This dish offers a good texture and savory flavor complete with great nutrition. Barley is full of fiber that lowers cholesterol naturally and helps us fight against heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and poor gut health.
The chicken offers a lean protein packed with the wide variety of vegetables that work to keep us full for longer, without over consuming calories. The orange zest and basil garnish offer a pleasant aromatic element, as well.
Feel free to remix this recipe. There’s always room for extra chicken or vegetables you may have on hand.
