Homemade chicken soup is one of my family's favorites, and I try to make the soup hearty so it passes muster as a dinner entree, especially on cold nights.

I don't always have time for the full-blown, from-scratch soup, which takes hours to make, strain and cool properly, so I came up with a somewhat quicker version that uses store-bought broth and is enriched with dill, barley and aromatic vegetables.
