      This chicken dish was easy to prepare. I used two large chicken breasts, pounded thinner, and cooked the chicken for about 8 minutes per side. Other than that, I made no modifications to the recipe. We liked it, but found it to be way too salty (and I like food salty!). The recipe did not say to use low sodium or sodium-free chicken broth, so I used regular broth and I added the 3/4 tsp salt (in addition to salting and peppering the chicken breasts). I would say that future chefs will want to use regular chicken broth and omit the 3/4 tsp of salt. I served with a side of asparagus, which complimented nicely.

      A little salty for our taste, next time will reduce the amount. Apart from that - yum!

      I ordered saffron online so I could try it out finally, been curious forever about the taste. You'r recipe post is the one that I decided to try. I was not disappointed. I didn't think it was too salty, in fact I added extra salt at the table, but I am a terrible salt-a-holic! I thought the sauce was a bit thin, but very good! I will make this again. Thanks for posting this recipe CarolAT!
