I would rate this 5 stars, but DH thought it was too spicy. I used a yellow rice mix, so I omitted the saffron and used about 2 cups chicken broth because the mix instructions said to use 3 1/2 water to that amount of rice (5 servings). It really was quite easy and took less than 50 minutes to make---more like 30, I would say. Thanks for posting.
