I am used to big, savory breakfasts, with mixed fried rice, vegetables, eggs and meat. I like to fill up first thing in the morning, because after all, isn't there a saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? But nowadays, sitting down to a relaxing meal in the morning is almost impossible with the rush to get ready for the day. So I reserve the full-meal, savory breakfasts for dinner, when everyone is more relaxed and has more time to taste what is on the table.
I used leftover cooked barley, so if you have some in the refrigerator, then toss it in the pan with some pancetta or bacon and zucchini. You will be glad you did, because it comes out really good. The lemon-garlic sauce enhances the flavor of the chicken tenfold and, I have to say, is my favorite part of the meal. For the eggs, a little mixing up with the basic onions and tomatoes goes a long way too. This one-pot meal doesn't lack in flavor.
When you have some leftover barley and need a complete meal to cook in just one pot, then this is the recipe you are looking for. You have chicken, vegetables, grains and eggs all in one filling meal.
