Original recipe yields 12 servings

Directions

  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.

Delicious and hearty! I skipped the cream cheese and locatella cheese, as I had never heard of this one, subbing for it asiago and adding a little more parmesan. Didn't do the roasted red peppers, but won't be skipping them next time as they probably would have added a great dimension.

The most time consuming, expensive, and disastrous recipe I have ever made in 50 years of cooking. Way too much barley, recipe did not state whether to put the sauteed veggies into the casserole or not. I put them at the bottom of the casserole and the creamed cheese mixture on top. My husband rated this a 4 out of 10. He does not want any more. I have broken it into several pieces and placed in freezer bags. Will add to my homemade soups a bit at a time. The recipe ingredients looked so enticing. What a dissappointment. Used all the ingredients called for and followed the recipe. My adivce is not to bother.

Great recipe, but way too much prep for me. I will cut down the veggies next time and just add whatever I have on hand or some frozen mixed veggies.
