Nana’s Spanish Saffron Chicken Soup (Paleo)

This is a  bowl of nostalgia! The first time I made this I was nervous about using just water and not adding some broth but I wanted to follow Nana’s recipe so I didn’t change it. I’m so glad! It is perfect as is. Exactly as I remember it as a child. Spanish saffron is pricey but so worth it.

Nana’s Spanish Saffron Chicken Soup

1 lb of chicken pieces
1 clove minced garlic
olive oil
2 pinches of Spanish saffron
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the garlic in pasta pot. Fry chicken in garlic and olive oil. Put enough water in pan to cover the chicken (about a quart or so). Add salt, pepper, parsley, and 2 pinches of dried saffron. Boil about 1 hr 15 minutes and serve broth and chicken over cooked spaghetti.

    I’ve never actually had saffron, but I hear it’s really yummy. I was looking for a homestyle recipe to try it in and I think this is it! It looks simple, but I like simple. I want something where I can taste the spices. Less is more, eh?
