  2. Add water or chicken broth to the skillet along with carrots and content of the Know One-Skillet Meals and bring to a boil.
  3. Cover. Then turn down heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for 23 minutes or until the barley is tender.
  4. Place spinach on top of barley mix and cover again for 5-10 minutes or until the spinach has wilted.
