Smokey, spicey, slow cooked chicken and barley soup

At last my husband is home and cooking.  Experimenting with a few different flavours. A spicy version of our usual child friendly chicken and barley soup. Its smells wonderful and today has been chilli and long. My mouth is watering and I cant wait to relax and let the spicy steamy soup relax my soul.

Yum. I will try to get the recipe out of him before he forgets what he threw in.

I did see some chilli, ginger, curry spices, slow cooked and strained chicken stock, onion, garlic and pearl barley.
