Chicken Barley Soup

Chicken soup is one of the best comfort soups when you're feeling a cold coming on or just want to warm up on a chilly day.  It's also a good way to use up leftover chicken.






Chicken Barley Soup

6 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups chicken, cut up
1 cup carrots, sliced
1 cup peas
3/4 cup medium pearl barley
1/2 tsp sage
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

Put chicken broth, chicken and carrots into a large stockpot or crock pot.  Cook over medium heat until carrots are almost tender.  Add in barley and peas and cook an additional hour.  Remove bay leaf and serve.
