  • Whisk oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, fennel, and cumin in a small bowl and pour into a plastic re-sealable bag. Place chicken in bag and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent (about 3 minutes).  Add chicken pieces (reserving the marinade) and brown on one side (about 4 minutes).  Flip and cook another 4 minutes.   Season with salt and pepper.
  • Lower heat, add reserved marinade and enough water to almost cover chicken pieces. Add saffron, peppers, carrots, and artichokes.  Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.  Remove chicken to a serving platter.  Thicken remaining liquid by slowly adding cornstarch mixture and stir (about 2 minutes).  Add sauce and vegetable mix over chicken, top with parsley and enjoy.
