Chicken Thighs With Barley and Peas
This dish is the definition of homey and comforting. It’s inspired by the classic French comfort food dish chicken fricassee, which lands somewhere between a sauté and a stew. It’s typically a one pot dish in which chicken is simmered in a rich sauce with potatoes or noodles. This modern version uses barley instead, which amps up the fiber and texture. Peas and carrots offer lots of color and add sweetness to the meal. Make sure you take your time browning the chicken; the skin needs time to brown and get crispy in the skillet before you add broth.
