2 x Chicken Breasts, Halved
1 T Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Clove, Chopped
1 sm Onion, Chopped Fine
1 c Raw Rice
3 c Water
1 pn Saffron Threads Or Powder
1 c Chopped Broccoli (Or Frozen)
Saute the chicken in the oil with the garlic and onions until lightly
browned. Remove mixture to a large pot, discarding excess oil. Add the
rice, water, and large pinch of saffron to the pot and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer. tightly covered, until the rice is tender
(at least 30 min.), adding extra water if necessary. When the rice is
nearly tender, add the broccoli to the top of the pot and cover. Cook
for 5 min more. Broccoli should be bright green and tender when the
meal is cooked. If the rice is done before the broccoli, simply turn
off the heat, cover the pot again, and let the broccoli finish cooking
by steaming. Children like the novel idea of "yellow" rice.
