1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=151), diced, undrained (you can use seasoned tomatoes)
1 (16 ounce) jar of your favorite salsa (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=835)
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can fat free chicken broth (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=154) (I like to use the reduced sodium)
1 cup quick-cooking barley (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=38)
3 cups water (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=459)
1 tablespoon chili powder (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=719)
1 teaspoon cumin (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=20)
1 (15 ounce) can black beans (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=192), drained and rinsed
1 (15 1/4 ounce) can corn (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=229) or corn mixed with chopped peppers, undrained
1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=221), cooked and diced (3 cups)
cheddar cheese (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=564) (optional)
reduced-fat sour cream (http://www.recipezaar.com/library/getentry.zsp?id=147) (optional)
In a large saucepan, combine first 7 ingredients (tomatoes through cumin).
Over high heat bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add beans, corn and chicken; increase heat to high until chili comes to a boil.
Cover and reduce heat to low.
Simmer for another 5 minutes, or until barley is tender.
If upon standing the chili becomes too thick, add more chicken broth or water until chili is desired consistency.
If desired, top each bowl of chili with a little shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.
