Barley is one of my favorite grains. Most of the barley grown in the United States is used in beer and other malt beverages. As it turns out, I like it that way too!
I browned 4 chicken thighs in a skillet and then laid them on top of the mixture in the rice cooker. Then I added 2 cups of water and put the rice cooker on the white rice setting. It is bubbling and steaming away. I can't wait to taste it.
