    Title: Chicken Barley Soup (Lo-Cal)
    Categories: Soups, Poultry, Vegetables, Grains, Citrus
    Yield: 8 Servings

    3 lb Chicken; in pieces
    1/2 c Uncooked barley
    9 c Water
    2 tb Lemon Juice
    3 Celery ribs; w/leaves
    1 sm Onion
    1/2 c Chopped onion
    1/2 c Finely chopped carrot
    1/2 c Chopped fresh parsley
    1 tb Salt
    1/2 ts Pepper; fresh ground
    1/4 ts Celery seed
    1 1/2 c Cut green beans cut; fresh
    - or frozen, thawed

    Place chicken, water, leaves from celery and small onion
    in a large saucepan. (Reserve celery ribs.)

    Cover saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer
    for 1 1/2 hours until chicken is tender. Remove chicken.
    Strain broth into bowl; chill until fat sets on top.
    Remove fat. (Reserve for another use - UDD)

    Remove skin and bones from chicken, discard. * Cut chicken
    into bite-sized pieces, set aside. (Note: if you want less
    than 8 servings, freeze extra broth and chicken separately
    in meal-sized portions.)

    Return broth to saucepan. Chop reserved celery ribs, add
    to broth with chopped onion, carrot, parsley, barley,
    lemon juice, seasonings. Cover and simmer 20 min.

    Add fresh green beans and chicken; continue cooking 15 min
    or until beans are tender.

    Each serving 1 1/2 cup.

    * I save the bones to make stock. And the skin, too.
    Further, I sometimes add the skin (after de-fatting as
    above) to some of the broth and use an immersion blender
    (Cajun Motorboat) to blend/puree the skin into the mix
    as a lo-fat, no flour/cornstarch thickener. - UDD
