Soup doesn't need to simmer for hours when you rely on rotisserie chicken, chicken broth, canned tomatoes and quick-cooking barley.
carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth (4 cups)
can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
medium carrots, sliced (1 cup)
medium stalks celery, sliced (1 cup)
cup sliced fresh mushrooms (about 3 oz)
cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
teaspoon dried minced onion
cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
In 3-quart saucepan, mix all ingredients except chicken. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Cover; simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until barley is tender.
Add chicken. Cover; cook about 3 minutes or until chicken is hot.
Add 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves to the soup for a savory flavor.
Be sure to use quick-cooking barley because the regular type needs to cook longer than this recipe allows.
