Casablanca dreaming in flavors of chicken pastilla

in Culinary Traditions & Food Ways by

Chicken Pastilla (or Bastilla) is warka pastry filled with savory slow cooked chicken, spices and nuts … but get this, it is dusted with powdered sugar and spices making it sweet, savory, buttery and crunchy.

That is Casablanca in a dish.

Chicken Pastilla is a savoury pie, reserved solely for celebrations, such as weddings or family get-togethers.

Made with sheets of the paper-thin warka pastry and traditionally filled with shredded cooked pigeon and spices, it is a slow cooked tradition with layers of flavor.

Although, Chicken Pastilla looks like one of those dishes that looks as though you spent days making it, it is not difficult and the flavors are well worth the effort.

Try making it at home with filo orpuff pastry and chicken.
