Saffron grilled chicken:
Chicken breast: 5
Yoghurt or liquid oil: ½ of a glass
Fresh ginger: 1 small piece
Brewed saffron: 1/3 of a glass
Lemon juice: 5 tablespoonfuls
Large tomatoes: 4
Butter: as needed
Salt and black pepper: as needed
Recipe: Chop onions and pour them into a bowl. Cut chicken breasts into wide strips, divide each strip into two parts in the middle, and add them to the onions.
Add the yoghurt or liquid oil, ginger, brewed saffron, 5 tablespoonfuls of lemon juice, salt, and black pepper to the pieces of chicken and the onions, and mix them well so that the chicken pieces are completely impregnated with these materials. Cover the top of the container with cellophane or freezer bags, and put the container in a refrigerator for 5-8 hours to become tasty.
Put the chicken pieces in a row on a table, hold the pieces with one hand, and pass the skittles slowly throw them (they must be in contact with each other with no distance between them). Cut the tomatoes in half and pass a skittle throw them too.
To prepare the special butter sauce for the grilled chicken, pour some butter in a bowl and heat it to melt, and add 2 tablespoonfuls of lemon juice and some salt and pepper to the bowl.
Put the skittles with the chicken pieces on charcoal coal fire, and turn the skittles a little for the color of the chicken pieces to change. Then use a brush to add the butter sauce onto the chicken pieces. Occasionally put the skittles on top of each other so that the grill water penetrates into the chicken pieces and they remain crisp. After the chicken pieces are grilled, add the rest of the butter sauce on the chicken pieces and remove them from the heat.
Points: If you want to prepare the grilled chicken in an oven, after passing the skittles through the chicken pieces put the skittles inside the oven tray that has been greased, and place the tray inside the oven at 200˚C. Every few minutes, turn the skittles over and rub the butter sauce on the chicken pieces until they are prepared for eating.
