Using a pressure cooker to make this flavorful chicken soup speeds time cooking the pearl barley; a process that normally takes 1-2 hours can happen in 9 minutes. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, use a heavy stockpot for stovetop cooking, add more stock, as some will cook away, and allow more cooking time.
