Cooking Instructions

  1. Sauté the 12 chicken pieces in batches on both sides in the hot oil until deep brown. Remove from the pan and set aside. Season lightly. 
  2. Reduce the heat and add the 1 finely chopped onion to the pan. Cook gently until soft. Add the 1 crushed garlic clove  and vegetables (4 diced parsnips, 4 diced turnips, 4 diced kohrabi). Return the chicken to the pan, then add the 1 cup of stock and a few sprigs of thyme. Cover tightly and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with the barley pilaf. 
  3. To make the barley pilaf, soften the onion in the 2 tbsp oil. Add the 1 crushed garlic clove and 390 g rinsed and drained barley. Stir until lightly toasted. Pour in the 4 1/2 cups of stock, season to taste and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 35 minutes, or until the barley is tender and the liquid absorbed. Check the seasoning.
