In a small pot of boiling water, cook the barley according to packet instructions.
Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Mix together the red pepper pesto and 2 Tbsp olive oil and coat the chicken.
Place in an ovenproof dish. When the oven is hot, cook the chicken for 15-20 minutes until cooked through/no longer pink in the middle.
When the barley is cooked (after about 20 minutes) drain, drizzle with about 1 Tbsp olive oil and add to it all the remaining ingredients, then toss gently.
Spoon into bowls, top with the cooked chicken pieces and enjoy.
