    • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (2 to 3 pounds), cut up
    • 8 cups water

    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

In a large stockpot, cook chicken in water until tender. Cool broth and skim off fat. Set chicken aside until cool enough to handle. Remove meat from bones; discard bones and cut meat into cubes. Return meat to pan along with remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1 hour or until vegetables and barley are tender. Discard bay leaf.
