The wife and I love Mediterranean cuisine. Don't think we've ever been Moroccan, though. Usually we do Greek/Lebanese/Turkish to get our fix.
Yes, it was wonderful. In fact, all the dinner was! It was a 7 course meal for only $20, and had another chicken dish, a lamb dish, appetizers, dessert, etc. Even a bowl of fruit fruit (apple, orange, grapes, banana).
The other chicken dish was in a spicy fruity thin sauce with cinnanom, oranges and herbs.
It was similar to other Mediterreanean foods, but much more spice (not "hot" just flavorful) and fruits. The chcikenbastilla had that phyllo dough crust, and a dessert course was baklava-ish with aslo the phyllo dough.
I once made a dish of apricots and chicken and it was also good.
(The restaurant, by the way, was Casablanca near Wilmington, DE. Lots of fun, belly dancers, etc.)
