The hardest thing about making this dish is finding saffron in the store that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg. The saffron is what gives this dish a bright yellow color and unique taste.
I shopped around to find a small quantity of saffron, which made the price a lot more reasonable. It was worth the little bit of shopping I had to do, because it really makes a difference in this dish. And a little saffron goes a long way.
The chicken can be served in whole pieces or with just the meat pulled from the bone in pieces on top of the rice.
Either way, it's a colorful and delicious dish to enjoy all year-round.
