I received PERDUE® Signature Chicken Stock from Perdue in conjunction with a sponsored social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.
Creamy Chicken Barley Soup made from rich stock, wholesome barley, fresh chicken and vegetables, doesn’t need to take hours to prepare. PERDUE® Signature Chicken Stock has robust chicken flavor that makes soup a breeze!
I was so excited when I first found out that Perdue was rolling out a refrigerated stock. Stock to me has all the good stuff already in there. Chicken broth with vegetables and seasonings marry to create that flavorful taste I love. A must have as base of my soups and casseroles.
Another important issue to me when choosing ready-made stock or broth is the source. PERDUE® chickens are always fed a 100% vegetarian diet, including locally sourced corn and soybeans, and marigolds. They never use added hormones or steroids.
I love their motto supporting this philosophy: Because we believe that if you wouldn’t feed it to your family, we shouldn’t give it to our chickens.
The USDA certifies the chickens from PERDUE® are fed a 100% vegetarian diet, with no animal by-products, and cared for in a clean, safe environment.
You can make this delicious Creamy Chicken Barley Soup in less than 30 minutes!
Start with the freshest ingredients.
Sauté your chicken, celery, onion, garlic and mushrooms in butter.
While chicken and veggies cook, Bring 2 cups of stock to a boil. Gently stir barley into boiling stock.
Add sautéed ingredients. Look at that rich broth!
Slowly stir in milk.
