  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring the barley and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the barley is tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the celery, carrots, garlic, and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, zucchini, green beans, and broccoli. Continue cooking and stirring until the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat.
  4. Combine cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, Locatella cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, nutmeg, oregano, basil, and thyme in a large bowl, mixing until smooth. Stir in the prepared barley, peas, corn, roasted red peppers, spinach, and shredded chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Spread mixture into a large baking dish and top with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, and cheese has melted, 20 to 30 minutes.

This 'recipe' is more of a cooking challenge than I have recently seen. If I saw a cook book with the title "Meals with 28 Ingredients", I would not likely buy it. Chicken and Barley blends an...
