      We really enjoyed this. I also uncovered the chicken for a few minutes to thicken the sauce like Peter J did. The chicken comes out moist and tender. We didn't get the saffron flavor and I threw in extra because the strands were so short. I served it with rice pilaf and Caramelized Brussels Sprouts With Pecans for a tasty meal. Thanks for posting. :)

      This is a real winner. Absolutely wonderfully moist and full of great flavors. Only small change I made towards the end was to give the sauce about 5 minutes uncovered at a higher temperature to thicken a little more because it was just too good to let any go to waste!

      Very good and flavorful chicken dish. I used chicken breast tenders, but other than that followed the recipe as written. This was my first time using saffron. It's hard to believe that 2 little strands of saffron can have so much flavor. With so much flavor in the chicken, I decided to serve it on a bed of white rice and a simple side salad. Made for ZWT5.
