Skillet Lemon Chicken With Barley is a quick, healthy and flavor-packed skillet dish. Using a Knorr One Skillet Meal as a shortcut for this dish, the recipe couldn’t be simpler. And it’s extremely tasty, too!


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1– inch pieces
  • salt and pepper to season chicken
  • 1 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 package Knorr® One Skillet Meals – Lemon Chicken with Barley
  • 1 (6- ounce) package fresh baby spinach


  1. Heat olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and sprinkle flour on top to coat.
  2. Brown the chicken in the skillet, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add in the water, carrots, and entire contents of the Knorr® One Skillet Meal, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and cover skillet. Simmer for 23 minutes, or until barley is tender.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat. Place spinach on top of the barley mixture and cover for an additional 2 minutes. The steam will begin to wilt the spinach. Stir the spinach into the mixture until combined and serve.
