Spanish Chicken with Saffron Rice

Since John felt guilty about the hamburger and fries he ate for lunch instead of the healthier fare he packed, I made this Spanish Chicken with Saffron Rice dish to detoxify him (recipe below). Actually I don't know anything about detoxifying nor am I an expert on eating healthy. John and I just try to eat plenty of vegetables and fruits and make meals that are tasty but easy to cook up.

Yesterday I noticed this recipe in the March issue of Bicycling magazine (which by the way is a great magazine). I usually try to stick to simple recipes that call for few ingredients but I just happen to have all of them at hand so I decided to give it a whirl. It is actually pretty good! With a little help from spices, the flavors come from all of the vegetables--and there are plenty: red onions, carrots, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, green olives, parsley, peas, and lemon juice). According to the recipe, this serves 4 (most likely very hungry cyclists) but this could probably feed six to eight people. We will surely have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
