Kozani Chicken with Saffron

Saffron Threads in Kozani Chicken

A warmly spiced chicken dish from Kozani, as region in Greece. In this recipe, we used Safaroma's Pure Saffron Thread for this recipe as Saffron from Afghanistan is gives you a darker yellow color and its aroma and taste are perfect. This simple stew of chicken thighs is brought to life with saffron, paprika and prunes.

  • This is wonderfully well-written saffron recipes post. Thank you so much! I always love your recipes because when followed and cooked, I never been disappointed. By the way, buying premium saffron is best decision, totally recommending it to anyone who loves saffron for rice and chicken or any other dishes and trying saffron for the first time is exciting so if you haven’t, give it a shot, you will never regret it

    Love you Safaroma and its wonderful team!
