Weeknight dinners don't need to be complicated or time consuming. A simple healthy dinner can be prepped the night before and all there is left to do is minimal cooking which is perfect for this time of the year leaving more time for outdoor activities. Saffron chicken is a simple dish cooked in a pot with a few ingredients and usually served with rice, but this version can be grilled on a barbecue or baked in an oven. I made this on a weekend day and went to the trouble of making wraps from scratch, but if you don't have time there is always the option of buying them. Sumac and saffron can be found in most grocery stores these days and barberries are found in specialty stores.
