Wonderful dish, thank you! I used a pinch tumeric instead of saffron because that's what we had in the cupboard. Family enjoyed very much. Delicioso!!!

This was very tasty and easy to make, I used chicken breasts and thighs on the bone, cutting the breasts in half. I made this for a tapas dinner and the group as a whole enjoyed it but no one cared for the saffron, so I would leave it out the next time. Thanks Elmo for sharing.

Excellent and very easy. I loved all the garlic in this chicken recipe, the addition of saffron was great for that added yellow/orange sauce. Made for NZ/AUS Recipe Swap #34

This is our newest favorite chicken recipe. I was wondering if the garlic would be overpowering in this dish, but it was not. I was also pleasantly suprised to find that browning the chicken first and then braising it with a little liquid (I substituted broth for the water) cooked the chicken all the way through without losing its crunchy coating. I'd give this a 10-star if I could. It's that good!!

Served with some lemon rice and it was very good! We loved the sauce and used some over our rice too!

What great flavor these crispy little chickens had! Delicious! Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best tasting ones. I used chicken thighs. Thank you for a great dinner! Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches.

This was my first opportunity to cook with saffron, and I am glad I tried it. The chicken turned out so tender, and the garlic and lemon made the chicken so moist and flavorful. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT5.

Wonderful! This is so simple and so good. I cut it down to one portion so used one thigh and one drumstick - still made all of the sauce. I served this with Spicy Spanish Saffron Rice which was a great compliment to this lemony chicken. The saffron gave it a wonderful color. Thanks Elmotoo for a new great keeper. Made for ZWT5 2009.
