Method :

Fry (saute) the chicken in the oil until just browned, then half-fill the pan with water, add the onion, thyme and bay leaf and simmer for about 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Transfer the chicken to a serving dish and keep warm. Mix the yoghurt, saffron and lemon juice with 250 ml/8 fl oz/1 cup of the strained cooking liquor and season to taste with pepper.
