Chicken with Cinnamon and Saffron
A simple yet aromatic chicken dish that really gets the juices flowing! The saffron and cinnamon seem to make the chicken juicier somehow. A memorable dish that is so easy to make. A basic recipe on which to build by adding personal touches, such as adding raisins, dried cherries, or even dates.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, saffron, cinnamon, salt, flour, vinegar, and olive oil, stir until smooth.

Add wine and chicken livers to the pan and bake 20 to 30 minutes more or until juices run clear. Makes four servings.
