Persian Chicken Over Buttered Saffron Rice

29

I love saffron in every way but my favorite way is in Persian food. I just adore the flavors of this dish. It’s simple yet immensely flavorful. The buttered rice is the perfect accompaniment to the chicken and the shirazi salad adds the pop of brightness to it. For us its one of those dishes that everyone’s happy to eat and so there’s no whining which is an added bonus for me. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do. XO
