Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Add 1 cup broth; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until done. Cool; shred chicken. Discard broth.
Bring 3 cups broth to a boil in a large saucepan; add barley. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 35 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Cool. Combine chicken, barley, cucumber, tomatoes, bell pepper, feta, and olives in a large bowl.
Combine 3 tablespoons oil, rind, and remaining ingredients (lemon juice, basil, thyme, red wine vinegar, salt and garlic cloves); stir well. Add to barley mixture; toss well. Cover and chill.
Makes 8 servings, 1 cup each.
For a time saver use rotisserie chicken instead of shredding your own. Tastes better when chilled for atleast 2-3 hours so flavors can mix.
