Recipe came from Barefoot Contessa show on Food Network. I have interchanged the dry white wine with Sherry when I am out of white wine. The spanish thread Saffron is pretty expensive (about $20 for an amount the size of a quarter dollar!) but I have also been able to interchange it with powder saffron that is sold at ethnic stores, the taste is a little different though. You can add a little more chicken stock if you want a little more sauce to dip your crusty bread in. I have found that having everything ready will make this dish a little easier to complete (i.e: having your stock ready, your veggies peeled and sliced, your ingredients ready). I used my Le Creuset 5 quart buffet pan for this and it worked perfectly for this dish! From stove to oven to table!
