  1. In a medium bowl, place the cubed chicken and onion juice. Mix in salt and pepper. Completely dissolve crushed saffron threads in the mixture. Cover and allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  3. Place the marinated chicken on skewers. Frequently brush with butter while cooking on the prepared grill. Turning frequently, cook until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, or to desired doneness.

This is one of my husband's all time favorite things in the world! It is worth the saffron! Served with grilled veggies, rice, bread and cheese and you're in heaven!

The onion juice ruined the taste, in my opinion. This would have tasted much better with substituting with grated onion instead, and including salt.

I've used this recipe for years. What a great marinaid. I purchased a juicer just so I could juice onions and ended up juicing so much more.
