    FolkDiva's Note:

    Traditional Spanish recipe for tender chicken breasts subtly seasoned with fresh rosemary. According to Spanish tradition, when you pass by a rosemary bush you should pull some sprigs from the fragrant shrub and carry them in your pocket to ensure good luck in the week to come! Perhaps this dish will bring you that same good fortune! Submitted for Zaar World Tour 5.

      I loved all the flavors in this dish. I substituted dry white wine and dry mustard for the sherry and turmeric--other than that I followed the recipe as written. The rosemary and the zucchini really make this dish spectacular. I could hardly wait for the dish to finish to get done...the aroma while it was cooking was mouthwatering. Thanks for another great recipe, FolkDiva. Made for Summer, 2009 Photo Tag.

      Wonderful taste! I added a handful of shrimp in the shell at the very end in addition to the chicken and omitted the green pepper. I loved the zucchini in this (as I have quite an abundance in the garden at this time). Thanks for sharing.

      Very, very nice chicken! I made a few adjustments ~ used 4 large chicken breasts, cut the turmeric almost in half, & used lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P, & it served 4 of us with just a small amount left over! Really enjoyed the use of the saffron & rosemary, & I'll certainly be keeping this recipe around! [Tagged, made & reviewed while in Sprin during the ZWT5]
