  • 1 HEAT your olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Toss your chicken with flour and then cook 4 minutes until browned. (Chicken will continue to thoroughly cook in Step 2 with the barley.)
  • 2 ADD water, carrots and contents of Knorr® One Skillet Meals to the skillet and bring to a boil. Cover, turn down the heat to medium-low and simmer 23 minutes or until barley is tender. (For perfectly cooked barley, make sure to keep covered.)
  • 3 PLACE your spinach on top of the barley mixture and cover. Remove from heat and let stand covered 2 minutes (the heat will begin to wilt the spinach). Stir until spinach is completely wilted and well blended. Now it's delicious, dig in!
