Saffron Chicken

Submitted by: CIOUID

Introduction

You can use any combination of chicken pieces including breast if you like. Serve with basmati rice and a side of my recipe for tomatos and peppers. You can use any combination of chicken pieces including breast if you like. Serve with basmati rice and a side of my recipe for tomatos and peppers.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    Chicken Thigh, 3 thigh, bone and skin removed
    Chicken Drumstick, 3 drumstick, bone and skin removed
    Tomato Paste, 0.25 cup
    Saffron, .5 tsp
    *Campbell's low sodium chicken broth, 2 cup
    Water, tap, 2 cup (8 fl oz)
    Turmeric, ground, .5 tsp
    Cinnamon, ground, .5 tsp
    Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    Olive Oil, 1 tbsp

Directions

Dice onion. Lightly fry the onion in the olive oil. Add chicken pieces just to brown. Add all other ingredients, cover and simmer for 1.5 hours or until chicken falls off the bone and sauce has thickened. If it's too thin, add a bit more tomato paste or simmer with the lid off until the liquid has a chance to evaporate, if it's too thick add a bit of water.

If you used chicken with the skin on, remove it before eating. Obviously don't eat the bones and don't give them to your dog! Your dog would rather have a nice T-bone steak bone instead.

  • Nice flavor and filling. It's good but not one we will make all the time. Fast to make.
    I made it with a special rice and the combination was really good! I made the rice as normal, adding crasins and rasins in the beginning! TRY THIS
    I made this in a slow cooker and will cut the water next time. - 12/2/12

  • The meat was excellent. The saffron gave the juice a beautiful color, but no noticeable flavor. - 5/24/09
