Can I leave out the peas? If you are not a pea fan or have kids that don't enjoy peas, just leave them out! The chicken and rice alone are so flavorful! If your family enjoys broccoli or spinach, serve it on the side.
What can I use in place of saffron? If you can't find any saffron or don't like it, you could try adding garam masala, turmeric, ras el hanout, or baharat.
