Chicken Barley Vegetable Salad

What you'll need is
1 cup pearl barley
1 chicken Breast cut in 4 big slices
2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1 carrot, cut into rounds
1/2 cup corn
1 tablespoon Fresh Lime juice
2 tablespoon cup olive oil
1/4 cup Mint or Cilantro Chopped

Bake the Chicken

Preheat oven to 400f
Cut chicken breast in to 3 pieces and marinate in salt and spices of your choice for 10minutes. I added a teaspoon Shan chicken tikka masala. Transfer the chicken in to a baking dish and baked for 15minutes. After baking let cool for few minutes then cut the chicken pieces in to cubes and set aside.

Cook the barley
Put barley in a saute pan over medium heat and toast until medium brown. In a pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil with sliced ginger and salt. Add toasted barley and cook until tender about 30 minutes. Drain and set aside

Saute Vegetables
Heat EVOO in a pan and add sliced garlic. After few seconds when garlic is lightly brown add the vegetables and saute for a minute. Cover and cook for few minutes until vegetables are tender.
Toss the barley with the vegetable mixture and baked chicken. Garnish with Mint or cilantro or parsley.serve with orange slices
