B’Stilla is a Moroccan chicken pie that features both savory and slightly sweet flavors that mix surprisingly well together. This meat pie is made with delicate layers of flaky, buttered phyllo pastry and filled in three tiers with heartily spiced chicken. (Although, traditionally, this dish would be made with squab or pigeon.)
