I love this colorful one pan wonder! Feel free to use asparagus, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower or any other vegetable you love more! You can also use any fish in this recipe, if the fish is salmon or something thicker, be sure to cook it for longer.
This soup has so much flavor because you brown the chicken and vegetables first and the barley only takes 30 minutes to cook! Make sure the skin on your chicken is minimal so your soup doesn’t come out too oily.
This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
This soup is fragrant, unique and incredibly delicious. Serve it with a side of rustic bread or rice noodles. (Soak the rice noodles in the boiling liquid from the soup for maximum flavor!
You can use a can of chickpeas instead of the uncooked ones, but why? It does not save time and this will taste better! If you want to make this an even more interesting dish, add uncooked eggs (in their shells) to the liquid and let them cook inside the stew. (can add 1 more cup of water too) The eggs will turn a golden brown and taste delicious with a bit of salt!
