  1. Remove any excess fat from the chicken then cut into bite sizes pieces.

  3. Drain any liquid from the chicken. Leave the chicken in the pot & add 3 1/3 cups of water & 2 tablespoons of butter. Bring to a boil then stir in the rice mix. Reduce heat & simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

I took this recipe and used a single chicken breast, and two hind quarters which I trimmed off the bone and took out all the fat and tendons. I seasoned with salt and pepper while I cooked it and then used a 10oz bag of the saffron rice. It was a hit with my wife and the kids wanted more. they are 3 and 2. hardly ever do they want more of anything. the 3 year old wants the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I will make it again but try different seasonings that go with saffron and see if I can make it really pop.

This was really good. I am a beginner chef and I didn't mess anything up. ;-) I think I will use Mrs. Dash seasoning next time because I would've liked a tad bit more flavor. Overall, great dish and very easy to prepare!

Thanks for such a quick and simple recipe. It was such a hit with my husband. He came in and took a look at the pot and said this looks like my kind of meal!!! It was absolutely delicious. I will definately be making this often in our house.
