Chicken-Barley Stew

Chicken-Barley Stew is an enriched take on classic chicken soup with rice; at once flavorful, hearty and comforting. 


2 cup Swanson Chicken Broth 
3 cup water 
2 boneless chicken breasts 
1 large onion, chopped  
2 stalks celery, sliced 
3/4 cup uncooked medium pearled barley 
1/4 tsp Pepper 
1/4 tsp Sea Salt 
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained (14.5 ounces) 
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley 
1 tsp dried thyme leaves 
3 large carrots, sliced 


In 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, place carrots, celery and onion. Place chicken breasts on vegetables. Add remaining ingredients except parsley and thyme.

Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours.

Remove chicken from cooker; place on cutting board. Remove meat from bones and chop into 1/2- to 1-inch pieces; discard bones.

Stir chicken, parsley and thyme into stew. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 10 to 15 minutes longer or until chicken is thoroughly heated.
