Chicken, Barley & Okra Stew - Clean Eating Recipes



Here's another simple, easy recipe for these cold winter days! It's loaded with good health and lots of yumminess. Just pop all the ingredients in the crock pot -- slow cooker -- in the morning and you are good to go at dinnertime. 


Jeep Momma’s 

Chicken Barley Okra Stew 



32 oz low-sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp garlic, minced
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tbsp thyme
1/2 tbsp basil
2 bay leaves
1/2 tbsp  black pepper
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup uncooked black-eyed peas
1/2 cup barley
1 medium sweet Vidalia onion
1 ½ cups celery chopped
1 ½ cups okra chopped




Fill a crock pot with broth, 1 cup water, garlic, herbs and pepper. 



Add the cubed uncooked chicken breasts, black-eyed peas and barley. 









Then layer onion, celery and okra overtop. For a firmer okra add it 2 hours before cooking is complete. Or you can replace the okra with carrots. 




Liquid should just cover vegetables. Do not stir. Cook on low for at least 4 to 6 hours. Remove bay leaves and stir before serving. 

ENJOY!
