Roast Chicken and Barley Pilaf
This is an version of a recipe I found in the February 2008 Family Cirle. I adjusted the recipe a little.
1 whole chicken
1/4 teaspoon slat
Black pepper mix
Heat oven to 450 f.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, Place some garlic pieces on top. Place chicken in pan with 1 can chicken broth on bottom of pan. Roast for 50 to 60 minutes. You can tent with foil halfway through cooking. check the water level and add more as necessary.
I put 1 cup instant barley with 2 cups of chicken broth in a rice cooker. I added one diced carrot, salt, pepper and a 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
Simmer to the amount of time on the package if done in a sauce pan. It will take about 10 minutes.
