    Great and easy way to do chicken. I had 3 huge boneless chicken breasts that I cut each in half. Didn't have a red chili pepper so I used a jalapeno. Didn't have the saffron either but it was delicious just the same. Wife says we have to have this again.....so we will. Made for Football Pool 2012.
