 Ingredients List

  • 1 ts Vegetable oil; pref. canola
  • 1 c Barley; quick-cooking
  • 1 Cl Garlic; finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 c Defatted reduced-sodium chic
  • 1/2 c Orzo
  • 1 ts Dried thyme leaves; -or-
  • 1 tb Fresh thyme; chopped
  • 1/4 c Chopped chives; or scallion
  • Salt and fresh ground black


In a medium-sized heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add barley and
cook, stirring until golden and toasted, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and
stir for 1 minute more. Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add orzo
and thyme. Stir once, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes to absorb any remaining liquid.
Stir in chives or scallion greens. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 4.

(Footnote: I am perplexed by that "cutlet cut in half." Which way, do you
think? Personally, I would do it the long way, that is making two long,
thinner pieces from the thicker cutlet so it would cook quickly.
