Creamy Saffron Chicken Tortillas Recipe

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth, warmed
1/2 teaspoon saffron
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk, warmed to hot
1 teaspoon oil
1 large bag baby spinach leaves (about 4 cups)
1 small box frozen peas, thawed
3 cups shredded rotisserie-style chicken
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 flour tortillas

In small bowl, combine warm chicken broth and saffron; set aside.



In small saucepan, prepare cream sauce by melting butter, adding flour and cooking, stirring, for about 2 minutes. Add hot milk, bring to a boil and then lower heat. Stir until smooth and thick, about 2 minutes. Cover and remove from heat.

In large sauté pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add spinach and sauté for 2 minutes, or until wilted. Add broth mixture and peas. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil for about 1 minute, or until mixture is slightly reduced. Reduce heat. Add cream sauce and shredded chicken, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt and pepper, and stir until heated through and slightly thickened.
