Persian saffron chicken
A few tablespoons vegetable oil
6 pieces of bone in chicken (I use drumsticks
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 1/2 cups chicken stock (water will work too if you are using bone-in chicken)
1/2 of the saffron water
salt and pepper to taste
Saffron Water:
1/4 teaspoon of saffron ground with a pestle and mortar
1 ice cube
Sprinkle the saffron in a small dish over the ice cube and allow the ice cube to melt. Set aside.

Heat the oil over medium high in a large pot. Combine the spices and sprinkle a little on the chicken. Saute the chicken and onion in the oil until browned.  Add the garlic and continue cooking for about 30 seconds. Add the remaining spices, tomato paste, the saffron water and chicken stock or water. Simmer until chicken becomes very tender and sauce thickens and reduces. If the chicken gets done before the sauce is thick and reduced, then remove the chicken from the pot and continue simmering until the sauce is done.
