Saffron Rice and Shredded Chicken Salad

Before I show you how to make this turmeric or saffron rice and shredded chicken salad, make sure you have a piece of cooked chicken breast, and a cup of chicken broth. If you don't have the broth, making it is easy.  Bring a pot of water to boil, season with salt and black pepper, then drop in your boneless, skinless chicken breast to cook until done.
