Barley Chicken Chili

 Barley Chicken Chili
I was looking for a new recipe for chicken when I discovered a dish I thought my husband might like. After making a few changes and additions to fit our preferences, I had this zesty chili simmering on the stovetop. It was great! Leftovers store well in the freezer.
