About this recipe: I'm really happy to have discovered barley. It's very good, despite how humble it looks. It's full of fibre, too, and easy - you just have to know how to cook it!


Serves: 4 

  • 200ml water
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 50g barley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 500g fresh asparagus

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Ready in:1hr40min 

  1. Bring water and the vegetable stock cube to the boil in a pan, reduce the heat to very low and stir in the barley. Cook until the barley is tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain if any water remains.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the chicken breast fillets, turning occasionally, until golden and no longer pink at the centre, about 10 minutes.
  3. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the asparagus until tender with a bite at the centre, about 4 minutes; drain.
  4. Stir the barley and asparagus together and serve with the chicken breast fillets on the side.

Serving suggestion

Sprinkle with minced fresh herbs - it's super good that way!
