Ingredients

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 cups chicken stock

1 cup green lentils

1 medium onion, diced

1/2 cup pearl barley

1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

4 Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 (16 ounce) bag fresh spinach leaves, chopped

1 bone-in chicken breast half, skin removed

1 cup mild salsa

Steps

Step 1

heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a pressure cooker over medium heat. Add sausage meat, and cook until browned, breaking it into crumbles. Remove sausage to a plate and drain oil. Add another 1 teaspoon of olive oil to pressure cooker; cook onion and garlic until onion is transparent. Add barley and stir 1 minute. Return sausage to pressure cooker. Add lentils, chicken, parsley, and chicken stock to cooker, adding enough stock to completely cover chicken. Close cover securely; place pressure regulator on vent pipe. Bring pressure cooker to full pressure over high heat (this may take 15 minutes). Reduce heat to medium high; cook for 9 minutes. Pressure regulator should maintain a slow steady rocking motion; adjust heat if necessary.

Step 2

Remove pressure cooker from heat; use quick-release following manufacturer's instructions or allow pressure to drop on its own. Open cooker and remove chicken; shred meat and return to soup. Add garbanzo beans, spinach and salsa; stir to blend and heat through before serving.
