Saffron chicken

Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

This smells so good cooking in the kitchen. The recipe is from the "Weekend" magazine. Serve it with rice or bread and potatoes. Yum! I guess that should say it all :)

I don't know if I was the one that went wrong, but no offense, this was really not worth it. I think the quantities stated were way off also. So much onion that I had no real gravy just onions, and onions with chicken sitting on top. And it was just another salan minus the turmeric and the saffron instead. Sorry to sound so off, just didn't like it at all.
