Kozani Chicken: A Simple and Delicious Way to Incorporate Saffron into Your Cooking
Saffron has long been prized for its rich flavor and vibrant color, but did you know that it also has numerous health benefits? Here are just a few reasons to add saffron to your cooking:
- Helps improve mood and cognitive function
- May have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
- May help with weight management and satiety
Here's what you'll need:
- 8 chicken thighs, skin removed
- Pinch of saffron
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 3 red onions, thinly sliced
- 1½ tbsp sweet paprika
- 20 pitted prunes
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 turns black pepper mill
Here's how to make it:
Place the chicken thighs in a saucepan with water and the saffron. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat and cook the onions until soft, about 10 minutes.
Add the paprika and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
Add the chicken, cooking liquid, and prunes to the saucepan. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for about 20 minutes, until heated through.
If the sauce is too watery, remove the chicken, prunes, and onions with a slotted spoon and reduce the sauce until you have a small amount to spoon over each portion.
Serve with pilaf rice and enjoy the rich, savory flavors of saffron!
