Excellent! Going into my favorites. I also added 4 bone in chicken thighs. Browned them prior to sautéing the vegetables then added back into the pot with the barley. Removed them once barley was cooked, shredded the meat and added back into the soup.

Great recipe. Quite sumptuous. Though my soup's color turned out a bit lighter.

Very tasty. added 4 bone-in chicken thighs to enrich flavor and add protein for my kids, but would have left as is for myself.

Very delicious. Tastes really good as a leftover meal. The flavors of the mushrooms and the barley really comes out after it has been in the fridge for a day and reheated.

Made this recipe 4 times so far. I replaced the butter with a little olive oil and used cut up chunks of fatty meat.
