Sprinkle the chicken with salt. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the chicken over. Add the garlic and chile, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Stir in broth, wine, saffron, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Discard chile and bay leaf. Sprinkle with parsley.
