Saffron Chicken

By November 16, 2016Health & Fitness

I’m not a cook, or profess to know everything when it comes to cooking. However, many of you have asked me whats my secret to looking healthy and fit at 51. I know the ingredients that I consume are good for my body. I am a firm believer that including them in your diet helps to keep the nasties away. This is a guideline of what I eat, so please excuse me if my recipes don’t read like a professional cook book.

I want to share with you my favourite saffron chicken recipe packed with medicinal ingredients that are nutritional, flavoursome and would be beneficial to incorporate in your eating plan. This recipe has many disease fighting active ingredients.

For instance, saffron is cancer fighting, helps with memory loss, works as an antidepressant, is great for digestion, assists with maintaining blood pressure and increases libido.


  • 500g of Chicken
  • A Pinch of Saffron
  • 3 Cloves of Gallic
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon Poweder
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 cm Piece Ginger
  • 3 Cardamoms
  • 3 Cloves
  • 1 tbs Cumin Seeds
  • 2 tbs Coriander
  • Coconut Oil


  • Crush the coriander and cumin seeds in a pestle, soak saffron, cardamons and cloves in 1/4 cup of water and set aside.
    Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowel, including the coconut oil and coat the chicken.
    Lightly brown the chicken in a pan to seal the juices.
    Add saffron mixture to the chicken and bake for 25 minutes or until cooked.
    Serve with salad or steamed vegetables.

If you don’t like a particular spice, you can always eliminate it! However, these spices have some real benefits, so it would be beneficial try as many as possible.

Strong is the new beautiful,
