Quick and Easy Saffron Rice

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by JoAnn

A mild side dish that won't overpower the entree. Use the thread saffron, which gives a much better flavor.

Served this with sauted chicken breast, and salad. It is a very good rice recipe. I used butter instead of olive oil, I think that adds to the flavor. We will for sure have this again. Thanks :)
