Step by Step method

1. Wash and trim chicken breasts and cut into 1 inch chunks. On the stovetop, add olive oil to a large pan and brown chicken on medium heat. Add onions and lower temperature to low-medium. Cook until onions are golden brown (about 3 minutes), stirring frequently.

2. In a separate saucepan, combine saffron and chicken stock and heat. Once heated, pour over the chicken and simmer on low heat 35 minutes, covered.

3. Periodically check to see if water is needed (so chicken does not dry out) and add if necessary.

4. Serve chicken with white rice or with pita bread. If desired.
