This dish was really easy to make. We ate seconds and still have left overs for lunch the next day. I used (4 thighs) and 5 drumsticks which I removed the skin from. The spice Saffron is a little out of my budget so we used the ground turmeric suggestion. I also seasoned my chicken with season all. At the end of the cook time the rice was a bit still under cooked so I add about a 1/4 cup of water and cooked for another 15 min. After that it was perfect. This will become a regular dish in my household. Really excellent.

I made this recipe last night looking for something new to make for my family & it was a true hit!! The only thing I changed was using frozen chopped spinach (because that is all that I had :-/) instead of the fresh spinach. The meal had great flavor, was a perfect pair with a ceasar salad and croissants! Also, with the down time of letting everthing simmer together I was able to help the hubby feed my 8 month old while we all stood around the kitchen island with my 13yo discussing his school day ... definitely recommend to moms!!
