Chicken Bastilla is Morocco's famous chicken pie. Delicious saffron chicken, spicy omelet stuffing, and crunchy fried almonds sweetened and flavored with orange flower water are layered within a crispy, paper-thin pastry shell. A garnish of powdered sugar and cinnamon adds to the savory blend of flavors.

It does take some time to make bastilla, but each step isn't difficult. The following photos will show how to assemble and decorate the bastilla. First you'll need to make the fillings. Follow the instructions in the Chicken Bastilla Recipe.
