Serves 8 | Prep Time 20 - 30 minutes | Cook Time 5 - 6 hours low crockpot


48oz chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 bay leaves
2 small chicken breasts (about 12oz)
3/4 cup regular barley (not quick-cooking)
1 onion, chopped
4 cups chopped kale
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2″ cubes
1 large regular potato, peeled and cut into 1/2″ cubes (I used Yukon Gold)
3 carrots, peeled and sliced

Add chicken broth, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and bay leaves into the crock pot then stir to combine.

Layer in chicken, barley, onions, kale, potatoes, and carrots.

Do not stir.

Press veggies down to cover with chicken broth then cook on low for 5-6 hours or until barley is tender.

Remove bay leaves then discard. Remove chicken breasts, shred, then return to the soup and stir to combine.
