I ate in a Moroccan restaurant and had this delicious, first time for me, appetizer.
Called chicken bastilla, it came on a large dish to be shared, a mound of flaky pastry (abouy 8 or 9 inches in diameter) covered with, of all things, powdered sugar. Sort of like a large, delicate meat pie.
Inside was minced chicken with cinnamom, ginger, almonds, saffron, and eggs. What a combo!!! We were supposed to eat it with our hands, which we did, getting powdered sugar all over. It was served warm, right from the oven. Yum yum.
Has anyone ever had this?
